Our approach is built around two pillars: young people’s behavior and a youth-friendly society.
We engage young people through dance, music, and personal stories
We inform young people about empowerment, leadership, sexual health and reproductive rights
We empower young people as agents4change to inspire and educate their communities
We celebrate young people’s achievements to raise public awareness and political support
We try to make our programme as effective as possible, in the following ways:
Keep the Barbadian dynamic in mind
Using an evidence based approach, the content of our four-step concept is tailored to meet individual youth realities.
Advocate for the rights of young people
Focusing on young people’s behavior alone is not enough. Without a supportive environment, change simply won’t last. That’s why we advocate for the rights of young people, in their direct environment and at the regional, national and international level. Our aim is that the voices and realities of young people are better reflected in policies.
Measure the impact
We are continually working to better understand the specific factors that can prevent risky behaviors and promote safe choices. We measure the impact of these approaches to build even stronger connections with young people and make our programs as effective as possible.
