GMFP aims to bring about sustainable global change in our focus areas (education, environment, health, human rights, and poverty) in three ways: 1) millennial direct actions, 2) impact engagements, 3) and influencing community stakeholder's actions.
Millennial Direct Actions
We mobilize millennials through our web platform and in our global networks to take action in support of our ambitious goals and partnership commitments.
We sponsor engagements in our global networks that will inspire millennial innovation and collaboration.
Our staple impact engagements include:
- Impact Socials - We host happy hours and socials that allow millennials to collaborate about our focus areas and how we can collectively increase our impact.
- Impact Dinner Series - We host bi-monthly dinners with 15 millennials (on us!) to spark dialogue about our focus areas and reflect on our collective impact.
- Impact Trips - We take annual service trips in connection with our partnership commitments.
