We address the subject of youth development by taking into consideration two important aspects – extrinsic and intrinsic factors.

Intrinsic factors suggest that we deal directly with youth as individuals through various outreach programs or initiatives. We enable youth to discover and develop their talents through several stages which are based on key leadership principles.

Extrinsic factors deals with the environment in which the youth find themselves. We provide opportunity for the youth to contribute meaningfully in decision-making processes and government policies that directly or indirectly affect them. We conduct research in various aspects concerning youth for the attention of development partners, donors, civil society organizations and governments, which are critical for global development.
