Youth Subcommittee

The ICFP Youth Subcommittee brings together young people from around the world with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and expertise to advance the sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice agenda. The Youth Subcommittee organizes the ICFP Youth Summit (formerly known as the “ICFP Youth Pre-conference”), a multi-day event focused on concepts around human rights, inclusivity, justice, identity diversity, and gender equity.

ICFP Youth Trailblazers

The ICFP Youth Trailblazer Award Winners are a group of global youth leaders (aged 18-35) championing family planning and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). This initiative began with an initial cohort of fifty ICFP 2022 Youth Trailblazers. Applications have now closed for the ICFP 2025 Youth Trailblazer Award. Check back soon to see the new cohort of winners! 

AYSRHR Global Roadmap for Action

Launched at ICFP 2022 in Pattaya City, Thailand, the Adolescent and Youth Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Global Roadmap for Action (AYSRHR GRA) is a growing coalition of 40+ youth-led organizations and collectives, as well as a robust platform for implementing a youth vision for SRHR, co-created and led by youth from around the world.

Youth are a driving force behind ICFP.

According to the results of the ICFP 2022 Participant Feedback Survey, the vast majority of respondents (93.2%) reported that ICFP plays a “significant role” in increasing the visibility and engagement of youth advocates in family planning.

ICFP offers a multitude of engagement pathways for youth involved or interested in any area of family planning and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR).

Explore all the ways youth are leading the movement toward universal access to family planning through the initiatives above!

“ICFP 2022 was such a life-altering event. I traveled outside of India for the first time ever, interacted with so many like-minded individuals passionate about working in the domain of SRHR, and became aware of amazing interventions globally that create impact and are scalable across geographies.”

“The capacity built, knowledge and skills gained through my participation and attending the International Conference on Family Planning #ICFP2022 in Pattaya, Thailand, has helped strengthen my confidence as an advocate because of the deeper understanding of my roles, position and responsibilities to contribute to the change desired.

I am, more than ever, so much more committed to continue being among the FP change agents fostering an enabling environment for Family Planning for individuals, communities and countries and cultivating a culture of advocacy and accountability, which is the cornerstone of resilience. Thank you International Conference on Family Planning. #FPforAll
