- The Ma3an project will increase the capacity of communities to withstand political, social, and economic stresses and shocks. The project will spur 30 of Tunisia’s most vulnerable communities to action and generate sustainable resources for development in areas that are vulnerable to instability and violent extremism.
- IREX leverages its positive youth development expertise and network of youth in Tunisia to engage a youth mentor network to provide marginalized youth with peer support. Youth Mentors will be trained in information literacy (Learn to Discern curriculum), positive storytelling, essential soft skills (YES curriculum), principles of Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning, and peer mentoring. Youth Mentors will then reproduce the trainings for youth in target communities by holding storytelling events, Professional Insight visits, and providing one-on-one mentoring sessions.
- Professional Insight Days (PIS) held by Youth Mentors in marginalized communities and training activities held in coordination with the Young Tunisian Coders Academy (YTCA) will provide engagement opportunities for youth in target communities that capitalize on technology and innovation.
