Pioneering Best Practices for Youth Leadership & Reproductive Health


GOJoven alum

Using the GOJoven Curriculum and Training Model, certified GOJoven Fellows Trainers are working in their communities around the world to strengthen youth leadership to advance adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights.

403 GOJoven Fellows trained using the GOJoven Training Curriculum

73 certified GOJoven Fellows Trainers

In order to provide institutions around the world with a proven, successful resource for strengthening youth leadership to advance adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights (ASRHR), GOJoven International published their Training Curriculum in 2020. The resource builds off of the GOJoven training model, developed in 2004 – 2020 by PHI and GOJoven Alumni from Belize, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico.

In 2014, GOJoven trained 43 program alumni as certified Advanced GOJoven Fellow Trainers, as well as an additional 30 Alumni Fellows to specifically implement the GOJoven Training Curriculum. As a result, these Trainers are adapting and replicating the GOJoven Curriculum in Spanish and English to train larger cadres of youth and adolescents in their countries both within and outside of the independent GOJoven Alumni Associations, and are available as certified in-country trainers to implement and adapt the GOJoven Training Curriculum in English and Spanish in partnership with other local and international institutions. In total, over 400 GOJoven Alumni Fellows have now been trained using the GOJoven Curriculum.

In 2019, GOJoven’s Training Model was recognized as a promising practice in youth leadership for advancing adolescent sexual and reproductive health and rights by the YIELD Research Project and in 2015 as a best practice in youth leadership development by the USAID-funded Leadership, Management and Governance (LMG) Project run by Management Sciences for Health.
