We can talk about our model and our scaling strategy, our best practices and our evaluations. But to really understand our impact, we invite you to step into our students’ shoes.
Remember being 13 years old?
Take yourself back to middle school. And now, let's re-imagine what it might have been like if there was a Projet Jeune Leader Educator teaching, guiding, and supporting you.
You attend a new timetabled class every week: sexuality education, taught by a dynamic young Educator.
You learn about puberty and health, but also about self-esteem, healthy relationships, violence prevention, goal-setting, and changing gender norms.
It's become your favorite class.
What you're learning is helping you now, and will help you later in your life.
It's also challenging you to think about how to improve your future, your community, and our society.
"I really enjoy the PJL class. I learned that boys and girls should have equal rights, and in class I also learned about puberty and what healthy and equal relationships look like. It also helped me find my confidence and convinced me not to be shy. I gained so much knowledge and advice in a short time."

You're surprised: instead of lectures and memorization, this class is fun.
For the first time at school, you're invited to actively participate.
You're inspired by the young, energetic Educator — someone who was in your shoes not that long ago.
You love having the Educator around, filling your free time outside of class with games, books, and sports.
"Let me list what I like about the PJL Educator. First, he knows how to teach in the classroom and he is a real leader. Second, he helps me improve my skills, like how to control my emotions and how to find people I trust to help me with my problems. Third, I have gained a lot of knowledge and advice on life, like the good decisions I should make, how to be a role model. He convinced me not to be shy in class anymore."

For the first time, you have a trusted adult you can turn to who can offer non-judgmental advice and support when you need it.
You feel more motivated to go to school every day.
School is more engaging and welcoming.
“I can see and feel that I have changed, my whole behavior has changed. In the past, I had to be dragged to school because I was lazy, but now I am eager to study. We have been able to learn a lot and gained a lot of benefits. We children have become very smart when we are with the PJL Educator! Thank you, sir!”
Student, Fandriana Centre Middle School
You've gained confidence and new aspirations — and even hope to become a Projet Jeune Leader Educator one day.
The Projet Jeune Leader Educator has changed your life and your school.
You hope that every other school in Madagascar will have a Projet Jeune Leader Educator, too.
"The presence of the PJL Educators at my school in the last four years have changed my life. Olivia, Ravaka, Niaina, and Onja: you’ve inspired me to believe in myself. I learned to achieve my goals. I apply your lessons in my life. Please, spread PJL all over Madagascar. I was about to go astray in my life, and you straightened my future. I love you, PJL, because you supported the success of my entire life."
