This case study describes PATH's work in Zanzibar with the African Youth Alliance (AYA). AYA played a crucial role in ensuring that adolescent sexual and reproductive health concerns be included in the government?s national vocational education and training (VET) policy. AYA staff members also provided ongoing technical and financial support to the country?s government, nongovernmental organizations, and its private sector facilitating the pilot integration of a Life Planning Skills curriculum into VET centres. In doing so, AYA staff built local capacity and set the stage for scaling-up and institutionalizing youth-focused policy implementation, to ultimately ensure a broad, positive, and sustainable impact on the lives of Zanzibari youth.
