PHI’s GOJoven International has trained hundreds of young leaders through an intensive youth leadership development fellowship program focused on improving Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights (ASRHR) in local communities across Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico.

Published for the first time in 2020, GOJoven International’s unique training curriculum is now available to other programs and institutions working to strengthen youth leadership to advance ASRHR around the world—helping to provide young leaders with the skills, knowledge and abilities to advance ASRHR programs, policies and services in their communities and regions. Participants will learn concrete skills and apply them in their own work with young people, thereby strengthening their own leadership capacities and directly impacting adolescents in their communities.

The GOJoven Training Curriculum includes three 8-day modules that, historically, were delivered approximately every four months during the GOJoven Fellowship year. Each module builds on the information and skills imparted during the preceding one to increasingly develop young people’s competency to advance ASRHR.

Woven throughout the three modules are training sessions that focus on the three primary, critical themes that make up the foundation of the GOJoven Fellowship Program:

  • Sexual and reproductive health and rights 
  • Program planning, implementation, and evaluation
  • Leadership
