Y-Adapt is an IFRC tool developed by Climate Centre to introduce the important impact of climate change to young people engaged with a RC/RC national society. This foundational training teaches youth the fundamentals of climate change from analyzing its impacts on communities to introducing the concept that young people can take meaningful actions to help strengthen their communities’ resilience through climate change adaptation.
The American Red Cross wants to build on the Y-Adapt approach to help empower young people across the globe as leaders in their communities to take climate actions. In this context, we are looking for a partner to develop or adapt a curriculum to different global contexts for implementation through the RC/RC network. The long-term goal of this project is to ultimately scale this upskilling/leadership training in targeted countries where climate change is disproportionately challenging the status quo.
To start, the American Red Cross would like to see a curriculum developed or adapted to meet the above articulated need to be delivered to youth volunteers and staff of national societies. An initial pilot will take place in the Pacific Island nations of the Marshall Islands and Solomon Islands to validate the approach, materials, contextualization, and applicability for other small national societies. The training will be delivered in English with consideration of any specific contextual needs
