EMPOWERING YOUNG ADOLESCENTS TO MAKE HEALTHY AND INFORMED SEXUAL HEALTH DECISIONS FROM PUBERTY INTO ADULTHOOD
The future depends on young people's access to high-quality health services and education.
Projet Jeune Leader is a youth-founded, youth-led, and youth-centered organization in Madagascar striving to transform the lives of
young Malagasy adolescents through comprehensive sexuality education.
We run an innovative, multi-component, school-based comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) program in public middle schools in Madagascar.
We place two highly trained and supported young Malagasy adults (ages 18-25) full-time in each of our partner middle schools to teach our year-long CSE curriculum. When our educators are not teaching, they are providing other essential services to students: counseling, medical referrals, and fun and educational extracurricular activities.
