Building Youth Leadership: ****MENA Regional Training for Sexual and Reproductive Rights Advocates ****Deadline to Apply: April 30, 2013****

The Youth Coalition for Sexual and Reproductive Rights (YCSRR) is an international organization of young people (ages 15-29 years) committed to promoting adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive rights at the national, regional and international levels. We are students, researchers, lawyers, health care professionals, educators, development workers, andmost importantly, we are all dedicated activists.****

In 2014-2015, the International Conference on Population and Development Programme of Action (ICPD PoA) and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will be reviewed. The coming months and years offer significant opportunities for progressive youth advocates to influence the next development agenda, and, ultimately, ensure that youth SRHR is at the heart of the agenda.****
Throughout 2012 and 2013, the YCSRR will be holding a series of regional trainings for young SRHR advocates. In 2012, we successfully held two trainings in the Asia-Pacific and the Latin America and Caribbean regions and another one in 2013 in Africa with over 70 young people.****

Expanding to other regions, the YCSRR will conduct the third training of this series in the Middle East and Northern Africa region to build knowledge of youth activists on the ICPD and MDG review processes on regional and international levels, and assess how their commitments have been implemented at the country level. During the training, participants will strengthen their capacities to effectively lobby their governments and national delegations on issues related to the ICPD PoA and the MDGs, while also increasing their knowledge of issues concerning young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights. Through these trainings, the YCSRR will provide ongoing technical assistance to participants and their organizations throughout the follow-up to the training. During the follow-up, participants will collaboratively work to develop national action plans to hold governments accountable to commitments made to youth SRHR in the ICPD and MDGs agenda.****
