Speeches Shim

Youth make up more than half of Morocco’s population and are disproportionately affected by socioeconomic challenges. These challenges, including a lack of access to quality education, high unemployment, and political disenfranchisement, contribute to high rates of marginalization. This reality is particularly prevalent in the north of Morocco, where many young people who live in densely-populated and underserved neighborhoods lack the resources and support necessary to become productive members of the workforce and their communities. USAID seeks to address the growing marginalization of youth by addressing socio-economic drivers behind their disaffection. USAID programs work with local authorities and civil society organizations to provide services that help curb drop-out rates and increase employability, create stronger bonds within communities, build the local capacity of youth-serving institutions, and foster community participation and volunteerism.
