Positive Youth Development
We engage young people as leaders and change agents. We nurture their potential to catalyze reproductive health, development, social change, stability, and economic growth. In crisis we empower them to survive, recover and rebuild their lives.
Welcome to Youth Advocates
Youth Advocates leads the way towards a future in which adolescent girls and boys can enter freely into a productive adulthood because they are educated, engaged, healthy, free from STIs and AIDS, and not exposed to violence, unintended pregnancy or unsafe abortion; a world where girls are treated with dignity and respect in equal measure with boys and where, regardless of their identity, young people’s human rights are promoted and respected. That future is a resilient future, a sustainable future and that is the future we want.
We ensure inclusive reform and formulation of policies and legislation that provide the right framework for equitable use of SRHR services and access to opportunities.
