Our Strategies

Giving young people agency is critical for their ability to drive change in the world around them. Youth Wave focuses on meaningful youth participation in its  programming to encourage young people to be leaders of change. Our approaches are designed to be led by young people for young people.

Peer Education

Peer education is a tested and proven methodology to engage young people particularly those in marginalized communities. We train young peer educators and equip them with knowledge and skills to provide a support network for other young people so that they can effectively respond to community challenges
