This five-day training targets rising young leaders (ages 15 to 30 years) in Malawi with experience in the fields of sexual and reproductive health, HIV, family planning, and youth-friendly health services to enhance their skills in policy advocacy. The goal of the training is to strengthen young people’s systematic engagement with policymakers to advocate for favorable policies and programs that could steer Malawi toward more investment in youth, and thus spur a demographic dividend. The training responds to the need for continued policy advocacy throughout Malawi at every level of decision making as well as a need for meaningful engagement of youth in order to meet sustained development outcomes. Although these materials have been developed for Malawi, they could be applied to other contexts if modifications are made to country-specific data and information. The content on leadership, youth engagement, and advocacy is applicable to any context.
