Young Leadership Development

Today’s children will be next generation of leaders.

For this reason, HRI is developing programs and activities that effectively build youth leadership skills, as well as youth cooperation and participation. The goal is to prepare and empower a new generation of leaders by capacitating and encouraging children and young adults to be active participants and drivers of positive change in their own communities.

 

This includes advancing the following in the settings where HRI works:

  • Youth organization: creating opportunities as well as safe and positive spaces for young people to congregate, share, and organize productively.
  • Connecting youth with adults (parents, caretakers, teachers, community leaders): engaging families, schools and local leadership in the process of supporting youth leaders, the prospect of youth organizing, and youth representation in community forums and decision-making processes.
  • Community development: creating opportunities for children and young adults to invest and engage in projects that benefit their communities.

HRI goes beyond food and water. HRI is empowering a generation of young people to spark positive change in their communities. True progress!
