USAID YouthPower in Jordan

Global Communities employs inclusive and participatory methods to reach youth, including those who are the most vulnerable and susceptible to poverty, disease and violence. By implementing youth-focused programs in economic development, health, conflict mitigation and civic engagement, Global Communities enables youth to reach greater potential and secure a healthier, more sustainable future. A key component of our commitment to positive youth development is engaging youth in their own development.

On February 23, 2015, USAID awarded Global Communities the YouthPower: Implementation IDIQ. Under this IDIQ, Global Communities has the opportunity to respond to Request for Task Order Proposals to provide technical assistance or direct service implementation in the areas of:

  1. Increased youth use of services and opportunities
  2. Improved quality of services and opportunities for youth
  3. Strengthened engagement of youth in development activities and policy-making processes

Global Communities is leading a consortium of 10 partners, five of which are small businesses, bringing to USAID’s YouthPower expertise in economic development, civic engagement, education, sexual and reproductive health, youth inclusive financial services, vocational training, conflict resolution, research, and knowledge management. Our partners include: International Research & Exchanges Board (IREX), Advocates for Youth, Brandies University’s Center for Youth and Communities; Encompass, LLC, Freedom from Hunger, The Kaizen Company, Juarez and Associates, Kiron Global Strategies, Search for Common Ground, and Woller and Associates.
