To make it easier for youth to get involved and remain involved in environmental and climate work and to foster meaningful collaboration with youth.
A world that enables young environmental and climate leaders to elevate their voice and maximize their impact.
The YCC Story begins with believing. The Kennebunkport Climate Initiative (KCI), took a chance on our Founder, Pooja Tilvawala, when they chose her as their first Climate Career Winner in October 2020. Thanks to their sponsorship and support, YCC was born. KCI is based in a small coastal Maine town on the forefront of climate change (the Gulf of Maine is warming faster than 99% of the world’s oceans). They are a non-partisan, solutions-based organization that believes youth are key to solving the climate challenge. Their goal is to develop a cohesive youth voice that influences decision-makers to embrace climate solutions and their aim is to educate, empower, and activate 10 million youth to reach this goal by 2025.
