All around the world, local communities are identifying the youth mathematician laureates among us, to recognize them and to provide resources for them to expand and elaborate upon their work to benefit their communities.
Whether their terms are six months, a year, or longer, some are given offices and resources to accomplish their work, while others create a program of projects with various agencies and organizations. Laureates have facilitated the creation of community gardens, investigations on behalf of their local watchdog associations or governing councils, or met with groups of various ages and interests to help them become more independent in their own mathematical practices.
YMLP helps development agencies, NGOs, and community organizers to recruit and support mathematician laureates who help regional communities plan sustainable forms of land use, design thriving infrastructures, and create indigenous cultural celebrations. We also match up potential laureates with organizations looking for them.
