Jóvenes Liderando Debates (Youth Leading Debate)

With financial support from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), NDI developed a policy dialogue and debate program to support young people develop a range of political assets, increase the profile and credibility of their political voices, and connect them with public policymakers. At the start of the program, NDI developed a dialogue and debate methodology that incorporated NDI’s youth theory of change, NDI’s in-house debates expertise, and lessons learned supporting youth debates globally, including the Ana Usharek program in Jordan and the Challenger program in Moldova.
