The Torchlight Collective is a consulting group of professionals and youth advocates working in global health and human rights towards the full achievement of gender equality and social justice. We are advocates, researchers, policy wonks, creatives, human rights activists, community organizers, development professionals, writers, communicators, trainers, and journalists.

What brings us together is our shared experience of leadership in youth movements around the globe, our passion for the issues we care about, and the belief that we can make a difference within our lifetime.
