INKEY IMPACT FUND leaders
19yrs, Ashoka Young changemaker, Colorado USA
“I’m inspired to be a changemaker by people who don’t feel recognized and who feel voiceless. What if we could create a world where everyone felt valued, appreciated, loved, and engaged? I see the potential for that world and that’s what I want to create. I am excited for this partnership because it will be a catalyst that will create a movement of young people around the world.”
19yrs, Ashoka Young co-leader, Manchester UK
“Knowledge is the provider of hope yet education is in need of change... we must rebuild so that the two can work together to enable young people to fall in love with the power of knowledge and the system of education.”
Children and Youth Years Manager at Ashoka UK and Ireland
“I hope that the legacy of the INKEY Impact Fund is a shift in the systems surrounding how young people grow up: a shift in society so that we ensure truly every young person becomes a changemaker.”

“Young people are not just the future, we are the present. And it is crucial to center youth voices in everything that we do. I want to live in a world where we truly value the voices of young people. The Inkey List understands and values young people's perspectives and our lived experiences. This is why I believe in the beauty of this partnership.”
