The JCFF has also partnered up with the respectable One Young World Summit to support young, Black and Indegenous leaders, between the ages of 18 - 30, who are leading innovative and impactful initiatives in Latin America. The Ilia Calderon Scholarship will select and fund the participation of two young leaders from Latin America to travel to the OYW summit and participate and learn from young leaders from all over the world.
