Our team

Where inspiration meets action

Do you remember the first time someone told you you were « too young » ?

We are young enough to have the ambition to change our communities for the better.

Young people around the globe are taking a stand for what they believe is right. Thousands of them are leading wonderful projects that are creating a rise of new solutions to challenges what we have been facing for such a long time. Solutions that are proving to be the right ones.

And that’s what the Young Enough Ambition is all about.

We are a team of young people willing to foster change. Within Young Enough Ambition’s organization, our management is participative, we believe at each of our team member must be equally heard while proposing new ideas and solutions. We are also proud of our Brazilian team, coordinated by our Project Manager. Our multicultural organization is an asset and we are happy to develop it.
