FAVORABLE OPPORTUNITIES TO REINFORCE SELF-ADVANCEMENT FOR TODAY’S YOUTH (FORSATY)

Maroc

Titre : FAVORABLE OPPORTUNITIES TO REINFORCE SELF-ADVANCEMENT FOR TODAY’S YOUTH (FORSATY)

Pays : Maroc
Localisation : Tangier-Tetouan-Fnideq/M’diq-Al Hoceima

Durée : 2012 to 2019

Contexte : Youth, making up more than half of Morocco’s population, are disproportionately affected by socioeconomic challenges. These challenges, including access to quality education, high unemployment, and political disenfranchisement, all contribute to high rates of youth marginalization. This reality is particularly prevalent in the north of Morocco, where youth (10 to 25 years old), living in densely populated and underserved neighborhoods, lack the resources and support necessary to become productive members of the workforce and their communities. Lacking a sense of purpose and belonging, these youth may become vulnerable to crime, irregular migration, and exposure to violent extremist rhetoric and recruitment, all of which imperil Morocco’s peaceful reform agenda.

In a time of regional instability, Morocco continues to set a positive example of community resilience through the country’s commitment to an ambitious agenda of reforms that strengthen citizens’ political and economic participation. To achieve this, all actors – especially youth – must be part of the discussion to develop solutions that respond to the needs of all Moroccans and foster enhanced collaboration between decision makers and their constituents. Implementing these reforms, while maintaining stability and security throughout the country, is of the utmost importance.

Descriptif
USAID is working closely with different public youth-serving institutions and local civil society organizations (CSOs) to help build their capacities, facilitate citizen participation, and ensure sustainable participatory governance. USAID’s FORSATY program worked to foster social and economic inclusion of at-risk youth (10-24 years old) living in marginalized neighborhoods in the north of Morocco by providing youth-friendly services to help curb drop-out rates and increase employability, create stronger bonds within communities, and build the local capacity of youth-serving institutions. FORSATY has evolved over the years, and will now include women, peace, and security interventions and a robust community resilience and gender research learning agenda.
