USAID increases opportunities for young people, including vulnerable and marginalized youth, and helps them effectively engage in their communities. USAID provides youth with needed psychosocial support, life skills and leadership opportunities, as well as referrals to technical training and other support to build skills and generate income.

USAID is currently doing this through the following activity:

Positive Youth Engagement (PYE) Activity

$25 million • Implemented by Mercy Corps • 2021-2026

Positive Youth Engagement (PYE) is a five-year multi-sectoral youth activity designed to address the core issues of Palestinian youth development. PYE supports 50,000 vulnerable and marginalized youth aged 10-19 with services that improve education, health, access to employment opportunities, and community involvement through: (1)  psychosocial, career guidance, life skills, and civic education activities; (2)  technical and vocational education and training (TVET) programs, internships, and entrepreneurship support; and (3) youth-led clubs and councils, community and social media advocacy campaigns, and mentorship opportunities.
