What is Generation Change?

The Department of State’s Special Representative to Muslim Communities has been working to launch chapters of Generation Change throughout the world. To date, over 30 chapters have been launched in every part of the world and networked over 550 young entrepreneurs to effect change within their own communities through community-driven projects and activities.

Generation Change is a program which began at the U.S. Department of State under former Secretary of State Clinton for young adults, in particular Muslim youth, to learn how to create websites, online blogs and other social media under the instruction of internet pioneers from Silicon Valley. The program is managed by Shahed Amanullah, who will continue to manage it when it leaves the Department of State, in the near future, to become an independent NGO.
