The Turkmenistan Youth Centers project was a four-year, USAID-funded project to support the creation of two youth centers in Turkmenistan. The goal of the project was to prevent young people (age 15 to 25 years old) from engaging in risk-taking behaviors such as those leading to crime, drug use, poor health, including HIV infection, and diminished future economic opportunities. The project worked with local institutions to establish safe havens for young people to interact with each other, learn new skills, attend educational sessions, and participate in alternative entertainment activities.
