    To address the gaps in programming for adolescent boys and young men (ABYM), YouthPower Action developed a multicomponent mentoring program for ABYM (ages 15–24) called Young Emanzi, which covers gender, soft skills, financial literacy, puberty and reproductive health, addiction and alcohol abuse, and violence prevention. Young Emanzi aims to promote positive gender norms, gender equitable and healthy relationships, and economic productivity while also addressing the reproductive health needs of ABYM. The Young Emanzi toolkit includes a trainers’ guide and resources, mentors’ handbook and mentors’ flipbook. These materials were developed based on a systematic review of mentoring programs for ABYM, participant engagement workshops to engage youth and potential mentors in the design of the toolkit, identify session topics relevant for the boys and a field test of the toolkit in Uganda with mentors and ABYM. Check out the materials to see if they are relevant for your AYSRH programming:
