Overview

The IYLC offers students a unique opportunity to meet with other students from around the world, learn about different cultures and participate in simulations to improve their leadership skills and broaden their horizons, which will have an impact throughout their lives. In addition, IYLC alumni are able to apply for jobs, internships and receive other benefits from us the more they get involved. Our week- long youth forum on world politics, international relations and justice will give the delegate an opportunity to test his/her leadership skills, debate on current issues and meet global leaders from around the world!

    Sometimes it feels like the biggest obstacle to going abroad is financing your trip, but that doesn't have to be the case! International Youth Leadership Conference has teamed up with FundMyTravel so that participants can make their very own fundraising pages online. This way, you have a creative platform to communicate personal messages, keep your audience engaged with your travel plans, and collect the funding to help make this experience a possibility.

    With a simplified payment system, participants collect funds right to their secure PayPal or WePay account. There is a solid team of experienced travelers and professionals at FundMyTravel, who are here to offer campaigners support, including insights for fundraising success. You can check out a few tips below before clicking the button above, to get started!

    FUND

    Just like travel, fundraising is about an exchange - so whether you send them post cards, create a video-diary, start a blog, or grow a photo gallery - make sure to share these things with your networks in exchange for their donations and online support! You can check out more unique and creative ideas on our Fundraising Toolkit.

    MARKET

    Using Social Media, writing Personal Emails and sharing consistent Updates on your campaign are essential steps for reaching that fundraising goal. You can plan the most inspiring trip, upload a video about it, and complete your campaign with profile details, but it won't make a difference unless you tell everyone where to find it!

    THANK

    Be sure to thank any and everyone who contributes to your campaign either through funding, shares, or even just likes. Be sure to acknowledge your supporters through Facebook and Twitter shout-outs, fun and engaging videos, individual emails or messages, hand-written letters and they are more likely to spread the word on your campaign efforts.
