We believe in a world where young people are central to solution building, policy-making and lasting change.


Born out of the World Economic Forum, the Global Shapers Community is a network of inspiring young people under the age of 30 working together to address local, regional, and global challenges. With more than 6000 members, the Global Shapers Community spans 378 city-based hubs in 155 countries.

In each city, teams of Shapers self-organize to create projects that address the needs of their community. Projects are wide-ranging – from responding to disasters and combating poverty, to fighting climate change and building inclusive communities. Shapers are diverse in expertise, education, income and race, but are united by their desire to bring about change.

We are Global Shapers Hub I and Hub II of the District of Columbia, USA.
