We believe in the power of youth-led development. Through our innovative employability and entrepreneurship programmes we are working to improve jobs and livelihoods for thousands of young people around the world. We encourage young people to get informed and give them all the tools and support they need to create positive change in their own lives and that of their communities.
Our youth network are the driving force behind PCI, they tell us what is most important to them and help us plan and execute our organisational goals and strategy. This is what we call Youth-Led Development – a term coined at our first World Youth Congress in 1999.
PCI’s internship scheme has provided work experience over the past 20 years to over 320 people both at the international headquarters and in West Africa and India.
With a staff of young people from all over the world and a group of expert trustees, we all work together to inspire young people.
From the Cold War to the Sustainable Development Goals, we've spent the last 30 years pioneering projects by young people, for young people, worldwide.
See what opportunities we provide for young people to build up confidence, get ready for the world of work and create positive change.
