Our Reach

From 2004-2012, GOJoven International 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. The program generated proven positive impacts at the individual, organizational and community levels, as well as a recognized increase in leadership and responsibility of its young leaders in the ASRHR field.

Since 2013, we partnered with the local GOJoven alumni groups in each country to found and launch their own independent youth-led, youth-serving NGOs. These four GOJoven Alumni Associations are sustaining the GOJoven mission and expanding the GOJoven model to greater cadres of young leaders, health and education service providers, and policymakers in the region.

Currently, our program is publishing and adapting its core components to contribute to innovative new initiatives aligned with our mission. Our signature model of youth leadership development can easily be adapted to other adolescent & youth health topics and geographies. It has been selected and featured as a promising practice by recent studies, as exemplifying all the attributes of strong and effective programming in the fields of youth leadership development and ASRHR (YIELD 2019 and LMG Project 2015).
