Project Overview

SCORE Youth Activity is a 12 month project, implemented by International Youth Alliance for Peace and funded by USAID through Global Communities SCORE. The project targets the youth between the age of 18 to 29 to improve their civic awareness, leadership skills, participation in community improvements, and decision-making processes. The SCORE Youth Activity emphasizes soft skills development, including leadership, innovation, and entrepreneurship skills which empower the Sri Lankan youth to become more engaged in their communities.

SCORE Youth Activity aims to build the youth’s civic engagement skills through training and internships while reinforcing the institutional capacity by engagement in youth leadership. Despite the challenges of  COVID-19 that has caused significant economic, social and cultural disruptions, the SCORE youth activity aims to train young people with leadership skills, and magnify their civic engagement, inclusive approach in all fields of growth and resilience to violent extremism.
