Applications are now open to support the Lead2030 Challenge for SDG4 for the third year. Working together, they can accelerate innovative youth-led solutions to achieve inclusive, equitable, and quality education for all.
Education is a cornerstone of sustainable development – it empowers and uplifts individuals, nations, and society. However, the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted students’ education and learning worldwide. Globally, millions of people have been left behind, with an estimated 1.6 billion students being impacted by the pandemic and 24 million children potentially never returning to school. Educational inequality was a global challenge well before COVID, but the pandemic has further widened the learning gap.
In line with Deloitte’s ambition to prepare 100 million futures for a world of opportunity by 2030, the challenge seeks to support scalable youth-led solutions that:
- Utilize innovative approaches and technology
- Address root causes of the issue
- Demonstrate ability to drive impact and potential to scale
- Recognize existing efforts and collaborate with others to accelerate impact
- Facilitate opportunities for collective impact, by engaging a wide range of stakeholders
- Improve the quality of, or access to, education and skills training that prepares young people to succeed
- The challenge is open to young people from social enterprises, non-profits, or community organizations.
- Note: projects need to be based where Deloitte has a presence.
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 30-Aug-21.
