RA invests in strengthening the leadership and advocacy capacity of young people and leaders – especially at the district and lower levels – as a starting point for them to be able to advocate for themselves and their communities. This endeavor seeks to actively engage young people in advocacy and advocacy accountability efforts for better employment and livelihood policies.  RA does this by:

  • Conducting youth barazas and citizen hearings on youth employment as accountability efforts to enable them to engage with policy makers about their employment struggles, seek accountability about implemented programs, and collaborate with RA and other actors to advocate for better.
  • Availing youth with a physical digital platform that amplifies their voices (especially voices that are rarely heard, of young leaders from district and lower levels) to advocate for their needs through vlogs and blogs.
  • Coaching/upskilling young leaders at the district and lower levels in advocacy engagement & social accountability practices in line with employment/unemployment policies.
  • Coordinating and collaborating with like-minded organizations in the private and public sectors to push for gainful employment and better livelihood for young adults.
