Young people are our most disregarded and untapped resource. They are innovators, inventors and activists with strong voices that need to be heard. The Ian Somerhalder Foundation educates and inspires youth to embrace their inner change-making selves. Our youth team doesn’t think outside the box because we don't believe in boxes. Our youth programs provide tools, support and resources to help young people discover their passions, develop their talents and create their individual purpose while learning to understand and work with the perspectives of others. Our programs help young people grow to become global leaders and change-makers who will be examples for current and future generations.
