This youth activist training tool was launched by members of Girls Not Brides in Zimbabwe in early 2018. It is also being used by Girls Not Brides members in Malawi. It includes a trainer manual and a participant guide and addresses the age range 15-24. The effectiveness of the tool needs to be assessed in time, but it appears a promising approach to training youth for activism. It would need modification to be relevant to HIV prevention among adolescent girls and young women, as the training focus is on child marriage. Consideration is needed on how to use the tool in contexts with little open civic space.
