2012 Program Goals
Generate Long Term Impact
Achieve a 98 percent or higher retention and graduation rate across programs in YTF’s core training programs. At least 25,000 people will be impacted by YTF’s innovative programs designed to create community change agents.
Provide Opportunities for Knowledge Building and Replication
Continue to develop a flexible program model such that YTF’s programs are customized within the CTLC-in-a-box model and based on the needs of the community.
Deliver Positive Outcomes for Our Beneficiaries
- Sustain impact and innovation in Agric-P.O.W.E.R (Agricultural Platform Offering Women Empowerment Resources), designed to employ youth as “information brokers” delivering agricultural content, knowledge and networks to women in rural communities. Over 500 rural women farmers will benefit from Agric-P.O.W.E.R in 2012 and at least 150 youth will gain viable employment.
- Launch RLabs Nigeria, a youth-led mobile health program in partnership with RLabs South Africa.
- Launch the Young Girls Scientists and Health Tele-Academy to empower young African girls, ages 13-18, to develop a passion for science and technology in a male dominated socio-demographic environment.
- Scale YTF’s civic education program, Yes, Youth Can! to Sierra Leone, Cameroon and Uganda, positively impacting at additional 10,000 youth.
- Launch a youth-led business incubator that provides life-skills that will enable youth to transform their ideas into commercially viable, income generating, micro-businesses. YTF will partner with youth to develop and adapt their skills to produce market competitive products. 100 youth will participate in this incubator in 2012.
- Achieve a 100% placement rate on students that graduate from YTF’s CareerTrak, designed for youth, ages 18-25, to help them identify career opportunities while gaining 21st century employability and technical skills.
