Global Youth Anti Corruption Network (GYAC) is a global network of youth organizations working on anti-corruption issues. It aims to establish a global youth network of emerging leaders that nurtures and is nurtured by the expansion of country-level initiatives to improve transparency and accountability; and create an enabling environment for youth to tackle corruption, in which youth themselves will set priorities to inform the follow-up activities of the network. The program will bring together youth between the ages of 18-35 active in anti-corruption efforts, youth journalists and young socially responsible musicians to increase awareness among youth about the impact of corruption on development in their countries; and create country level youth networks to promote concrete initiatives for greater transparency and accountability.
