Why does IOFA’s work focus on adolescents?
Adolescence is a risky stage in the lives of many young people, and the transition from childhood to adulthood can be very difficult, especially for youth living in poverty, in areas of political instability, or without access to traditional family and community networks. Despite these issues, few programs focused on serving at-risk youth exist. For more information on vulnerable youth, please click here.
