Peace Corps Volunteers have always had success working with young
people. Recent fgures estimate that two-thirds of all the people that
Volunteers reach are young men and women under the age of 25.
Volunteers work with youth in all sectors: agriculture, business
development, education, environment, health and HIV/AIDS, and youth
development. Youth development is unique in the Peace Corps, as it is
both a project sector area designed to support the assets and capacities of
young people, as well as an agency initiative that promotes an approach
that can be utilized to strengthen the overall impact of the Volunteer’s
work in a community.
In the feld of youth development, the Peace Corps believes approaches
are more efective if they create and support expectations of positive
outcomes by developing assets and strengths rather than focusing solely
on removing problems. Life skills, emotional development and relationship
building, along with supporting a sense of hope to meet aspirations for
basic needs and beyond, should be part of the underlying assumptions of
youth programming.
