Educate! tackles youth unemployment by partnering with schools and governments to reform what schools teach and how they teach it so that students in Africa have the skills to attain further education, overcome gender inequities, start businesses, get jobs, and drive development in their communities.
Our latest RCT results show that 4 years after Educate!, our graduates are better off than their peers in key areas linked to improved life outcomes.
Among other benefits, our most recent RCT reveals that Educate! leads to additional education investments among women, delayed fertility, more youth selecting STEM and business majors, reductions in risky behavior, improved social norms, and declines in intimate partner violence.
While our most recent RCT reveals a statistically significant improvement for both males and females in soft skills, gender equity-related areas, and education outcomes, the program’s impact on women is even larger.
2019 marks the 10th anniversary of our flagship program.
We directly implement our model in secondary schools and partner with governments to support national education systems.
The Educate! skills-based model is comprised of:
Student Business Clubs
Mentorship and Teacher Training
