Commitment to Action

Youth for Global Change Program

Commitment by

Richard Simon, Chairman, YPO - WPO Presidents Action Network

In 2007, the Young Presidents Organization committed to providing $1,000,000 to Free The Children to increase the number of Youth in Action clubs by 1,000 within a 12-month period.

Youth in Action groups are the cornerstone of Free the Children's activities, focus, and programs. Youth in Action members across the world work together to fundraise, to learn through taking action and to build awareness of child labor issues.

The objectives of this commitment are as follows: to increase the number of new active clubs by 1,000; to increase the total amount fundraised by youth in the new clubs by $4,000; and to increase the number of club members.
