Generation Unlimited (GenU) is a global multi-sector partnership that was launched in September 2018 during the UN General Assembly to meet the urgent need for expanded education, training and employment opportunities for young people, aged 10 to 24, on an unprecedented scale. It forges public-private partnerships – globally and in countries – to co-create and support investment opportunities, programmes and innovations at a large scale, and to help young people become productive in life.

The Generation Unlimited Multi-Partner Trust Fund is a pooled fund that was established in December 2019 to support GenU’s work and activities, especially at the country-level. It provides catalytic capital for the structuring of investment opportunities and mobilization of financing for young people around the world, and it is open for both public and private-sector contributors.


Assistance Strategy

Alongside partners, the GenU Trust Fund supports the development and implementation of GenU’s Country Investment Agendas, including the scaling up of solutions on learning, skilling, entrepreneurship and employment, and the development and implementation of GenU’s Global Breakthroughs – innovations that tackle challenges experienced by young people in multiple geographies.

The Trust Fund aims to catalyze financing towards GenU’s strategic priorities through:

  • Private commercial investment: Investors benefit from GenU sourcing and structuring investable ideas, and ability to share risk across multiple partners
  • Private capital through shared-value partnerships: Investors benefit from prepared business cases for investment and co-investment with governments and civil society
  • Domestic public funds: Governments benefit from the availability of catalytic capital to scale solutions for young people that advance national priorities and goals, and support in accessing development banks’ financing
  • Development grants and loans: Development banks benefit from increased country-level demand for concessional and non-concessional financing

The Fund is administered by the UN Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office, which acts as its trustee.


The Executive Committee

The GenU Executive Committee, which is the partnership’s primary decision-making body at the global level, oversees the Trust Fund, among other functions.
