Each year, CRS supports more than 150 million people in more than 100 countries. Now it is time to take our work to scale. Through its Vision 2030 agency strategy, CRS has identified priority outcomes that best align to our mission and expertise. One of those priorities is empowering youth.
Over the next 10 years, through skills training and opportunities to return to school, CRS will give young people the chance to pursue safe, productive futures in their home community. Together, we can transform a generation.
Through Go FAR, CRS will empower 5 million young people to thrive and lead by providing training and opportunities.
Why It Matters: Empowering Youth
Too many young men and women are out of school, unemployed or underemployed. Without safe opportunities to learn and work near their homes, their lives—and the global economy—will suffer.
By giving young people the chance to pursue safe, productive futures in their home communities, we can break the chains of poverty.
We are proud to share the stories of the people we serve as we empower youth and build a stronger future for us all.
