Youth Leadership Program

To help Ethiopian youth develop the skills and tools to create innovative solutions to their communities’ challenges, we are partnering with Ethiopian collaborators to develop youth leadership programs in southern Ethiopia. This program — Nutrition, Education, and Food Systems in Ethiopia — will incorporate elements of existing youth curricula, making adaptations to the Ethiopia context, and developing modules in thematic areas important for supporting youth to make positive change in their rural communities.
