Recognizing youth engagement as key to sustainable positive youth development, Chemonics engages youth to contribute to development efforts at the local, national, and global levels. Through sector-specific interventions and integrated approaches across sectors, our projects work with diverse populations of youth in civic engagement, health, economic growth and entrepreneurship, civil society strengthening, and conflict resolution. Through small grants to youth-led and youth-serving organizations, young people receive training in advocacy, civil society, leadership, conflict resolution, and other skills to help them make positive change in their communities.
