"Embracing Youth Entrepreneurship”


In 2012, World Bank President Jim Kim challenged the organization’s youth community to think of ways to foster growth in young professionals who understand the challenges of persistent poverty, and create solutions to eliminate extreme poverty and boost shared prosperity.

Recognizing the creative imagination and fearlessness of youth, the World Bank’s Junior Professional Associate (JPA) Community and WBG Youth are embracing President’s Kim challenge by asking young people around the world to participate in a twofold event. First, young professionals are invited to form teams and participate in a Development Case Competition. These cases highlight real life issues facing development organizations and focus on the following sub-topics: education, youth unemployment, and millennial communications. Teams will have an opportunity to submit their most innovative solutions to these challenges by September 1. Prizes will vary depending on the case, but may include a trip to Washington, D.C. to attend the World Bank’s first Youth Summit, cash prizes, and the chance to participate in project implementation.

Second, The Youth Summit, scheduled for Friday, October 3, will feature notable panelists and provide a forum for young people from around the globe to share innovative ideas and development products aimed at creating employment opportunities.
