Our mission

The Youth and Sport Task Force represents creative, passionate and innovative young leaders across Asia and the Pacific who use sport as a tool for positive social change in their communities. 

The youth are in control. They design their own programmes, determine their own priorities and collectively, decide on the strategic direction of the Task Force. UNESCO supports the Task Force by providing opportunities for the members to promote and enhance their work by connecting with each other and with regional and global opportunities for growth and capacity building.


All programmes represented by the Task Force are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.


We are cultivating a community of young change-makers who are already making a big impact, by youth, with youth, for youth. 

Join us and support the Task Force movement.

Our Vision

We provide a platform through which our youth members can express their views and ideas concerning global issues and engage with policy-makers and the international community. Placing youth in the centre of everything we do, we work in the community and with the most vulnerable and marginalized. Sport is our key to reaching them and making a positive impact.

Our Values

Supported by UNESCO, the Youth and Sport Task Force and its Members follow a strict Code of Conduct guided by principles of absolute respect for diversity, equality, honesty, fairness, integrity and professionalism. To read our Code of Conduct, please click here.
