MEPI Program Areas
Inspiring the Next Generation of Leaders
MEPI works to inspire youth to become actively engaged citizens, community leaders, and entrepreneurs.
Educating active citizens
Leadership trainings and civic education provide youth the skills and knowledge needed to foster change in their communities. MEPI projects encourage young people to be stakeholders in their own society, to support civic culture, to tolerate different views, to respect democratic institutions, and to protect ethnic and religious diversity.
Increasing Educational Opportunities
When young people receive a quality education, they have a strong foundation on which to become active and engaged participants in social, political, and economic life. MEPI scholarship opportunities, career development initiatives, and education-for-employment projects empower young people to become constructive contributors to their communities.
Professional Development for Youth
MEPI’s professional development projects for youth focus on promoting skills that lead to jobs and opportunity. Through MEPI-funded teacher training, curriculum improvements, and technology skills development, youth acquire the expertise they need to compete in today’s changing environment.
