The No Lost Generation Initiative was launched by partners in 2013 to focus attention on the plight of children affected by the Syrian crisis. By articulating real concerns about the possible ‘loss” of a generation of children to the effects of violence and displacement, the initiative put education and child protection at the center of the response inside Syria and across the refugee-hosting countries in the region.

The No Lost Generation Student Initiative is an independent consortium of student organizations that seeks to spread the mission of the initiative to college campuses, mobilizing students to enact lasting change.

The college initiative was started at the George Washington University and has since grown to over fifty colleges and universities across the United States.
