Empowering youth

What we do

The unprecedented number of young people in Africa, South Asia, and the Middle East represents both an opportunity for the future and a potential threat to stability.

We invest in youth ages 15–24 by promoting quality education, professional development, and job skills. Recognizing the diversity within youth populations, we help young women and men to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to be community leaders and active, informed citizens.
