Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) has replaced the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as the global development framework. As global goals, most countries have made this agenda as part of their national interest, including Indonesia. The Indonesian government even integrates the SDGs indicators into the National Development Planning 2020-2024, to proof their serious commitment. On the other hand, the regional and global competitions such as ASEAN Community that has been implemented since 2015, is also a contributing factor to the national policy-making processes, both domestic and foreign policies. Bases on the global goals and competitions, it is important for youth, as future generations, to be well prepared and to increase their competitiveness. As a part of universities' role and function, community engagement can be optimized, including for the youth capacity building. By using qualitative and case study approach of methods, this paper elaborates how universities, through the community engagement programs and activities, can actively contribute to increase youth global competitiveness and the achievement of global development goals.
