The Foundation works with national foundations and organisations currently operating in 70 countries and territories.
The aim is to have a positive impact on the greatest number of young people, in as many places as possible, in the shortest amount of time, with programmes that are effective and in ways that are sustainable.
All of the IYF's programme activity is based around the following four areas:
The aim of these efforts is to increase the effectiveness, scale, and sustainability of proven approaches to meeting young people's needs.
Currently the Foundation is working through a network of 46 partner organsiations in:
Each partner acts as a catalyst to bring together the NGO, government, and business sectors to address children and youth issues and to increase social responsibility toward children and youth.
The range of services and support offered by these foundations makes them effective mechanisms for offering financial and technical assistance to proven programmes within their countries.
This means that the IYF only provides grants to its global network of partner organisation. It does not accept unsolicited proposals.
Funding is directed at its global network of partner organisations, which identify promising and effective programmes and make grants to expand or adapt individual programmes.
