PROGRAMS

Youth Impact scales proven high-impact programs that improve the lives of youth around the world. Our programs in health and education are best delivered for the youth by the youth and are backed by rigorous evidence. See our programs below.

Teaching at the Right Level

  • Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) is a proven, innovative and low-cost approach to ensuring quality education reaches every child. 

  • Learning outcomes in Botswana lag behind similar income countries in basic literacy and numeracy. The government has identified the need for remedial education programs to ensure students are meeting curriculum requirements. 

  • As a TaRL Innovation Hub, Youth Impact is testing ways to make this program even more cost-effective while scaling the program  across Botswana.

Zones

  • HIV is the leading cause of death in Sub-Saharan Africa, with an estimated 685 daily infections, 67% of them are girls. 

  • There is a 28% increase in likelihood of unprotected sex-- a proxy for pregnancy and HIV-- for each year in age difference between partners. 

  • Based on evidence from randomized controlled trials in Kenya and Botswana, the program is a 90-minute class that encourages students to safely date among peers/age-mates to reduce the risk of unprotected sex.

  • Drawing upon the wealth of rigorous local evidence we’ve generated recently, we are now developing the highest impact program possible.

ConnectEd

  • The COVID-19 pandemic greatly underscored the need for adaptable, scalable distance education models to support students when schooling is disrupted.

  • Less than 40% of households in low- and middle-income countries have the appropriate infrastructure and networks required of typical ‘high-tech’ distance learning options (Center for Global Development 2020).

  • ConnectEd leverages a super accessible and inexpensive platform - basic mobile phones -  to remotely connect students to 1:1 instruction that is targeted to meet their individual learning needs.

  • This simple, cost-effective and  impactful solution is now scaling globally and enabling improved learning both during school closures and while school is in session.
