Activate your nonprofit on YouTube Answers – Youtube Creator Academy
At YouTube, our mission is to give everyone a voice and show them the world. We want to help people share and build community through their stories. This includes your stories, which bring awareness to social issues and inspire action.
Did you know that 1.5 billion people are logged in and coming to YouTube every single month? That’s the equivalent of one in every five people around the world! On average, our viewers spend over an hour a day watching YouTube on mobile devices alone.
YouTube enables you to reach a large and passionate audience who can help amplify your cause through their social networks. Whether you’re new to the platform or trying to take your channel to the next level, you’ve come to the right place.
