Chemonics supports tomorrow’s generation of world leaders — from small-scale farmers to healthcare workers, from community organizers to policy advocates. We take a cross-sectoral approach to youth development, ensuring that youth voices are raised across all sectors of our work. We recognize the heterogeneity of the global youth population, so our approach emphasizes intersectionality of youth identities and embraces the diversity of youths’ socio-economic, cultural, and environmental experiences. Chemonics ensures equity for youth stakeholders by putting them in the driver’s seat – working beside and for them for change. We support youth to gain the skills they need, foster partnerships for change, and work with governments and other young people to create an enabling environment for youth development.
