    Underpinning this model is DOT’s belief in the potential of youth to
    drive growth and development in their countries. This model positions
    young people as equal partners, leaders, and agents of change, equipped
    with the digital skills to scale their impact. Working with DOT requires

    in the capacities and resilience of its local youth-focused partners to
    offer more innovative and impactful programs. This role requires a
    commitment to participatory, inclusive, and community based approaches.
  • Gender equality: DOT uses a gender equity approach in its work to
    support youth economic inclusion and resilience, tackling the systemic
    barriers that limit opportunities for youth (especially young women) who
    face increased vulnerability, and creating opportunities to elevate the
    leadership of young women in spaces they have traditionally been
    excluded from. Central to our work is a commitment to gender equality
    and inclusion.

    prevent and respond to Sexual Exploitation, Abuse, and Harassment
    (SEAH), grounded in DOT’s comprehensive PSEA Policy and Code of Conduct.
