Youth Health

Youth Alive aims at increasing access & utilization of Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) services among the young people through provision of inclusive, integrated, targeted and age-appropriate and youth-friendly SRHR services that include; SRHR education, HIV testing services, linkages and referral, family planning, Voluntary Male Medical Circumcision (VMMC) and STI management. We also build capacity of service providers to provide these services in a youth friendly manner using the youth safe spaces at service delivery points.

Youth Alive aims to contribute to the wellbeing of young people including the OVCs through improving nutrition and food security, enterprise development that enable young people to either start own enterprises or get employment, Non Formal Education (NFE), vocational institutions, financial inclusion and fostering linkages between young people & local artisans for coaching and mentorship, input suppliers and markets. Young people are mobilized to form Village Savings and Loans Associations (VSLAs) to obtain savings and loans services.

Youth Alive adopts the evidence-based planning and decision-making approach through the utilization of data to improve youth programming. We use existing program knowledge & gaps to draw lessons and research results to develop innovative implementation strategies. We also work with partners to conduct youth-related research to inform programs.

Human Rights Governance

Youth Alive aims to improve promotion and protection of human rights for and by the young people especially the poor and marginalized. We work with all the stake holders to create rights awareness among children and their caregivers in addition to providing a favorable environment that minimize risk of child abuse.

Skills Development & Mentorship

Youth Alive prides in the Education for Life (EFL) curriculum as the backbone for foundational skills. This is an integrated training development model rooted in the social change theory. This model was designed using the Gerald Egan’s skilled helper work. It is adaptable for both in school and out of school groups. The model therefore seeks to move person(s), groups (peer support clubs/associations) and communities towards actions that lead to healthy and proactive life styles.
