Authors: WLP Bahrain/Be-Free Program

Yes I Can, our leadership manual for teens, is the first publication of the Young Women’s Learning Partnership (YWLP) initiative. The manual focuses on the transformative leadership capacities of girls and boys, and helps workshop participants develop collective solutions to challenges faced by their communities, nurture new norms of gender equality in their families, and engage in political processes for building just, peaceful, and democratic societies.

The manual is adaptable to a wide range of learning environments, and includes interactive workshop sessions that emphasize creativity, knowledge-sharing, and partnership building, to help young women and men develop greater self-confidence, learn how to communicate effectively, build leadership skills, and identify areas where they can exercise leadership. The handbook also includes guidelines for facilitators, with an emphasis on creating an engaging and positive environment that promotes mutual respect, dialogue, and collaboration.

The YWLP curriculum is designed to develop skills that will help empower young women to realize their own potential, and to understand the significance of their role in improving not only their own lives, but also in transforming their communities. Yes I Can is available in Arabic, English, and French.
