The Global Youth Issues portfolio is housed in the Policy, Planning, and Resources Office of the Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs. The portfolio is focused on helping the U.S. Government better engage young people internationally to help solve the pressing challenges of today while also building greater global connectivity and networks to shape the world of tomorrow.

Our focus on global youth helps coordinate, amplify, and oversee efforts in three primary areas:

  1. Engaging youth in honest two-way dialogue -- including through our network of over 90 youth councils and regional networks;
  2. Empowering youth as drivers of their own destinies through programs on expanded economic opportunity and skills building;
  3. Elevating youth voices and causes by raising the profile of young people and the issues that they care about.

The Special Adviser for Global Youth Issues, Andy Rabens, serves as the principal representative on youth issues for the U.S. Department of State.
