Call for Expressions of Interest:

Partners for Youth-Led Youth Economic Empowerment Activity




The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is funding the Ma3an project, a seven-year (September 2018 – August 2025) project that aims to increase Tunisian youth civic engagement and economic empowerment to advance progress towards sustainable and inclusive development in Tunisia. Ma3an is implemented by FHI 360, a non-profit human development organization dedicated to improving lives in lasting ways by advancing integrated, locally driven solutions. 

Ma3an’s objectives are as follows:  

  1. Objective 1: Youth have improved access to skills, services, and opportunities for civic engagement and economic empowerment  
  2. Objective 2:  Tunisian youth lead and meaningfully participate in activities to address youth and community priorities

Ma3an aims to ensure that young people have access to opportunities to apply them to achieve tangible civic and economic gains. Therefore, Ma3an will work with civil society partners to facilitate a youth-driven collaborative action planning exercise in each governorate that enables youth to work together with key Youth Economic Empowerment (YEE) stakeholders to identify and implement solutions for YEE priorities. 

In order to ensure that youth and other youth system actors at the governorate level drive the identification and implementation of Ma3an-supported youth economic empowerment interventions, Ma3an is pleased to release this call of interest to identify five (5) local civil society organizations (CSO) partners to support youth leaders and key public and private sector actors to implement a youth-led YEE collaborative action planning process which will result in Ma3an supported, locally-driven YEE initiatives. 

This process will commence with youth-led consultations with key public and private stakeholders for youth to better understand the labor market and value chains in their governorates and to define priority sectors that can be the focus of the action planning that follows. The youth will also conduct focus groups with youth and other stakeholders to identify priority needs for youth – for young women, youth with disabilities, racial minorities, and school dropouts – related to YEE services, opportunities, skills-building. The YEE partners will then provide in-kind support and/or follow-up for the implementation of priority solutions within each governorate to improve the economic enabling environment and access to services that empower and expand youth access to economic opportunities. YEE partners will also facilitate the access to opportunities for young social innovators and entrepreneurs who would gain applicable skills while playing a leading role in these collaborative solutions. 

Each of the 5 selected partners will support Ma3an by directly implementing activities in one of the 5 zones. 

The table below lists the zones, the governorates and communities served by Ma3an. Please make sure that you are working in at least these communities in each of the governorates in your chosen zone and you may propose other communities.
