The future of any country depends on the leadership qualities of those just emerging – the youth. And yet in too many areas of the world, youth struggle to have their interests heard – despite making up the majority of a country’s population. Our programs strive to put youth in the center of civic life – as full participants, equipped with the confidence, resources and capacity to be productive citizens and future leaders.
