Background on Youth Star Cambodia

Youth Star Cambodia offers university graduates a unique opportunity to contribute meaningfully to the development of their country, and to gain valuable skills and experience. Since 2005, more than 200 Youth Star Cambodia volunteers have transformed marginalized villages by increasing literacy and life skills among children and youth. These volunteers, recent university graduates who live and work in villages for 12 to 18 months, prevent at-risk children from dropping out of school, support students to improve their academic performance and self-esteem, and keep them on track to move on to higher levels of education. Ultimately, the volunteers equip young people with the tools to participate meaningfully in improving life in their communities.
