The Somali Youth Leaders/Learners Initiative (SYLI) is a five-year USAID funded program that focuses on enhancing quality basic education and increasing civic engagement and participation opportunities for Somali youth to contribute to community development and reduce instability in target areas. The project will address these issues by engaging youth in the region with training support, facilitation and guidance to empower young people to positively and productively contribute to society.


In 2015, SYLI in collaboration with Puntland Ministry of Youth, Labour and Sports (MOLYS) and MUDAN youth network have established the first youth umbrella in Puntland following series of consultative meetings that brought togetherrepresentatives of all the 10 regional youth networks in Puntland, MOLYS officials and other relevant stakeholders in Garowe. PYAN has now a clear constitution and working national structure through our partnership with MOLYS but lacks capacity and long-term support to sustain its youth operations throughout the regions of Puntland. Thus, Mercy Corps and MOLYS are looking for a local expert who will be tasked to develop a capacity building support to the core leadership of PYAN to strengthen its existence and improve its connections to both the public and private sector.
