Gooddler Foundation is a group of research-based practitioners, strengthening access to cutting-edge evidence-based non-formal, vocational and tertiary education opportunities for youth through building strategic alliances with academic, corporate and civic game changers and youth to design and deliver the best quality, easily adaptable and scalable programs that achieve measurable impact.
We promote a multi-stakeholder engagement, recognizing the important role of national and local governments, the UN system, civil society, private sector, regional institutions, foundations, academia, media and most importantly youth in creating greater economic opportunities. Gooddler Social Innovation Youth Incubator and Gooddler Social Innovation Youth Summit are the main events of the Foundation.
Gooddler Social Innovation Youth Incubator is a 3, 6, and 10 month-long, inclusive, participatory program for youth from different socio-economic backgrounds:
to develop a value driven character of a leader through discovering and building their leadership abilities
to foster a development of social entrepreneurship, aimed at solving challenges facing local communities, through learning and mastering necessary entrepreneurial skills.
The Incubator focuses on how young leaders could use an innovation and technology to tackle development challenges and aims at bridging a social distance in youth caused by the differences in race, gender, religion and ethnicity. It culminates with presentations of proposed solutions to the audience of philanthropists, social impact investors, and global civic and corporate leaders at the Social Innovation Youth Summit, an annual conference.
