At Southern Africa Youth Project we advocate and mobilize community support and resources to increase youth access to information, networks, new technologies that build linkages to professional and community networks and reduce social exclusion through a youth engagement community of practice that will support ‘meaningful youth engagement’; the development of measurement indicators and contribute to building the evidence, resources, and tools. 

Southern Africa Youth Project aims to mobilize community-level support for socio-economic strengthening programs for OCVY and their families and link the program to professional and community networks to ensure ownership and access to available government and private sector resources. Strong community networks and resources will further enhance the sustainability of socio-economic and health strengthening programs in communities beyond Southern Africa Youth Project.

Southern Africa Youth Project engages the youth, as well as community stakeholders such as community leaders, local municipalities, government departments, local business councils, local businesses and OVCY organizations, in program design and implementation to ensure youth have access to information, networks, new technologies, and new forms of communication to maximize the impact of interventions.
