Positive Youth Development

We have a decades-long track record of youth development, education and skills building. Starting with formal and nonformal education, vocational training and livelihoods work, we have developed expertise in youth leadership training, conflict transformation and PVE – at the core of our approach is an emphasis on youth as change agents.

In 2019, we won the Best Youth Organizer award from the prime minister of Bangladesh for our contribution to youth development.

We understand the youth of Bangladesh and that helps guide the design of policy, programs, supports and opportunities. Beyond simply viewing youth as beneficiaries of projects, we include youth as leaders and drivers of change.

We engage youth along with their families, communities and/or governments so that youth are empowered to reach their full potential. We build skills, assets and competencies; foster healthy relationships; strengthen the environment; and transform systems to empower youth.
