“Global Shapers Norfolk is a hub of the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers Community developed and led by distinguished, diverse young men and women under 30, driven by a shared responsibility to make a difference in their community. We are apolitical, not-for-profit, and committed to creating a better world by activating Millennials in Hampton Roads.”
As the first Global Shapers Hub in Virginia, we’re dedicated to serving the Hampton Roads region. We have a unique Hub that serves seven coastal cities: Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Newport News and Hampton. Our mission is to activate 757 millennials to drive creative change locally and share ideas globally. We choose bold projects, and have fun doing it.
The Global Shapers Community is a network of Hubs developed and led by young people who are exceptional in their potential, their achievements and their drive to make a contribution to their communities. Supported by the World Economic Forum, there are now Global Shapers Hubs in over 400 cities around the world.
