Curriculum and Workshops for Youth
The manual, Yes I Can: Leadership for Teens, was developed by the Be-Free Center, a program of Bahrain Women Association (BWA) in consultation with WLP partners in Jordan, Malaysia, Morocco, Nigeria, and Turkey. The Yes I Can curriculum focuses on the leadership capacities of girls and boys aged 13-17. It provides an understanding of gender in society, and a model for working together to achieve shared goals.
WLP partners use the Yes I Can curriculum alongside adaptations of WLP’s Leading to Choices to discuss current world events and local issues with young people. For instance, WLP’s partners in Brazil, Jordan, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, and Zimbabwe conducted youth activism workshops with children and teenagers during the international 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign.
