Growth by Acquisition (Proactive): YTF conducts a macroeconomic analysis of all countries in the region to determine which subset is more appropriate for program implementation. YTF may balance indicators of a country’s needs for its programs (such as high rate of poverty and low literacy) with gauges on the level of peace and stability. YTF delivers its repertoire of services including customized training material, human capital, and operational guidelines.
Growth by Initiation or Acceleration (Reactive): YTF partners with grassroots organizations interested in replicating the Community Technology and Learning Center (CTLC)-in-a-Box model. The organization or individual that initiates interest, the “franchisee”, co-invests to receive YTF’s repertoire of services including customized training material, human capital, and operational guidelines.
