Our Leadership Entrepreneurship Apprenticeship Program (LEAP) has been designed to prepare out of school youth for a productive community life with the objective to attain employment over an 18 month training and mentorship course. The main components of the course are:

  • Leadership and entrepreneurship
  • Marketable skill development
  • Post program support

We are currently conducting a pilot with a cohort of 120 out of school youth with an average education level of Primary 7. We expect at least a 50% success rate by the end of 2014 with plans to adjust and improve programming based on results. 

What we will measure:

  • Youth livelihoods in terms of income generation and observational improvements to family and home
  • Marketable vocational or employability skills
  • Small business creation
  • Increased community participation and leadership
