Global Scribes: Youth Uniting Nations®

If you have a game-changing idea and dream of leading a team of enthusiastic peers from around the world, this opportunity is for you.

Leveraging innovative technology for positive youth impact, our Scribers develop enlightened respect for humanity and its diversity while discovering their own talents and passions. Our ‘For Youth, By Youth' platform, Scribers WorldTM – The Creative Hub for Global Youth – augments formal education and spurs meaningful communication to Create. Connect. Collaborate.

  • Create. Each month, our Scribers post prose, poetry, lyrics or narratives motivated by a Spark Word. Scribers bring their stories to life in their own ‘selfie’ video and share short films that capture their daily lives and passions with the Global Scribes community across 45+ countries. Together, they look beyond borders to discover their similarities and differences.
  • Connect. Scribers from around the world engage in live conversations, discuss youth-led topics, share personal anecdotes and announcements through global chats and weekly video calls. They ‘laugh and cry together’ providing a social safety net for one another.
  • Collaborate. Scribers join GS Teams and create projects and activities that explore art, food, film, science, nature, fashion, tech, and so much more. Together, they connect to peers across the globe, discover common interests and develop real world solutions.
