This report aims to create awareness among policy and decision makers, programmers and the general public on UNFPA's Special Youth Programme, a global youth-adult partnership initiative that recruits young people from developing countries to join the Fund for a nine-month remunerated fellowship. The assignment includes work both in its Headquarters in New York and its Country Offices around the world, with the purpose of building young people's capacities in the areas of UNFPA's mandate.

The report presents the accomplishment of the programme to date and provides detailed biographies of the Special Youth Programme fellows, detailing their backgrounds before joining the programme, their involvement and achievements during as well as following the fellowship. It highlights ways in which the programme has influenced their live paths.
