August 2012

The Young Leaders Program (YLP) is a four-year initiative, funded by USAID and implemented by Counterpart International. The GOAL of the Young Leaders Program is to support active, civically-engaged and socially conscious youth in Tajikistan and to provide them with the tools and experience to take ownership of their future and contribute to the development of their country.

 

This goal is supported by two OBJECTIVES: (1) to increase youth involvement in promoting positive change in their communities; and (2) to improve the quality of youth services provided through government, donors and civil society organizations (CSOs). These objectives are supported by the creation and ongoing development of a youth civic education and program framework. The framework includes both materials (training manuals, project concepts, youth CSO directories) and methodologies (monitoring and evaluation of youth projects, youth grant making best practices, involving youth in local governance) that draw upon good practices from Tajikistan and other countries. The program is working with a number of governmental and non-governmental stakeholders in designing and continuing to improve this framework.

 

To support these objectives, YLP is soliciting requests for proposals from willing organizations seeking to participate in the program’s Technical Assistance (TA) grants initiative. This initiative is targeting local CSOs with requisite technical experience in youth development and organizational development to work directly with our program partners and target youth to strengthen and enhance existing program activities, as well as to design and deliver new programming in our target regions.

 

Through the issuance of Technical Assistance (TA) Grants, YLP ensures that other CSOs, particularly with a background in youth engagement, have the opportunity to share their knowledge and capacities to further strengthen existing YLP interventions, as well as formulate new interventions where there are gaps in existing programming. YLP will issue approximately three (3) TA grants, valued up to $6,000 each.

 

TA grants should be planned and implemented in all 3 YLP target regions – Zarafshan and Rasht valleys and Badakhshan. Proposed grant activities should include at least one of the following core YLP program activities

  • informal civic education;

  • youth leadership;

  • event organization;

  • new media or information technologies;

  • capacity building;

  • network creation;

  • other relevant technical areas.
