Twinning in PVE: Modeling Employability Skills Training on Resiliency Framework

Youth Economic Opportunities Network


Join Making Cents International’s Youth Economic OpportunitiesNetwork (YEO Network) and RTI International for an interactive Apply It! Webinar. The webinar will delve deeper into a conversation started at the Global Youth Economic Opportunities Summit (GYEO) in September 2018 about "CVE for PYD"  and USAID’s Kenya Youth Employment and Skills (K-YES) program.

The K-YES program takes a whole-of-society approach to build multi-layered resiliency for youth in preventing violent extremism (PVE). With funding from the U.S. Department of State's Partnership for Regional East African Counterterrorism  (PREACT) program, K-YES is working in partnership with local USAID implementing partners to pilot a youth mentoring and leadership program within the ongoing K-YES activities.

Webinar participants will gain insights on:

  •  The role of economic empowerment in creating a holistic approach to building youth resiliency to extremism;
  •  K-YES’s use of preliminary and ongoing research to design the intervention and learning agenda, and implementation to-date; and
  •  USAID’s youth development strategy as it relates to preventing violent extremism.
