Présentation
SO1 : AVENIR will engage with 2000 youth to deliver psycho-social development activities and pre-employment skills training to vulnerable youth who meet specific criteria based on poverty, engagement in violence and negative social behaviors. The program will identify 2000 youth and form 80 youth groups, 25 persons/ group with a 50/50 gender parity. Program curriculum will focus on reflective topics related to confidence-building, personal physical and mental health, community building, resilience, current events, inter-cultural acceptance, and pre-employment skills. In addition to these courses, 1000 adolescent girls will meet in 40 Safe Spaces to discuss gender-relevant topics. SPORTS FOR CHANGE : Sports, play, and other physical activities will be used to teach life and pre-employment skills such as : resilience, teamwork, and professional planning through fun and participatory activities. SAFE SPACES FOR GIRLS : Girls can attend trainings on topics such as gender-based violence, gender equality, life-skills, reproductive health, leadership, improved communication, and advocacy.

SO2 : 10 vocational training institutions will train 1000 youth on market-driven vocational skills, and with support from Mercy Corps, will integrate work readiness, entrepreneurship, and career development into their curriculum. All 1000 youth will form savings groups of 20-25 people each to learn how to access basic financial services and practice the benefits of planning for their current and future financial needs. After practical training on business plan development, the 1000 youth who receive vocational training will be encouraged to submit their own business plans, either individually or in groups, and the 300 individuals or groups with the best business concepts will receive business grants, start-up support services, interactive advanced-business skills training courses, and receive one-on-one mentorship and coaching from Mercy Corps and local business leaders. Additionally, 500 youth will receive 3-month apprenticeships with local businesses where they can learn employability skills and gain work experience. Apprentices will receive monthly stipends and ongoing mentorship from their host business, and will attend weekly employment skills training to build their skills. …..
