The academy aims to bring together young scientists to solve global problems and policy issues that require interdisciplinary expertise, to encourage young people to enter scientific careers, to promote a scientific culture in which excellence in research is more highly valued than seniority, and to improve the foundations of science worldwide by providing encouragement and recognition to researchers in countries with underdeveloped national scientific programs. In support of these goals, it has also helped to establish several national young academies.

National Young Academies

One of the major aims of GYA is to support the establishment and development of National Young Academies (NYA), cooperation with them and networking. For this purpose, GYA has developed a NYA blueprint and provided advice and letters of support. GYA also organizes mutual support and advice between NYA. See the list of NYA.
