YouthPower, a youth initiative of the US Agency for International Development (USAID) focused on evidence based approaches to Positive Youth Development, now offers a compendium of youth development resources based on leading research.

This Mentoring Workbook is designed to be used by Peace Corps Volunteers to foster and maintain a mentoring relationship with youth in their community. Volunteers have been informally mentoring local youth for decades; this resource is intended to help Volunteers structure and guide those relationships toward evidence-based outcomes.

This manual is intended to serve as a sourcebook for Volunteers and others to draw upon when implementing educational programs. The activities here are primarily organized according to subject matter, such as soil, water, trees, nature awareness, and ecology, with additional activities included under Service Learning Activities and Games.

Outside the Lens is a 501(3)c organization based out of San Diego, CA. Since 2012 they have partnered with Peace Corps in Colombia to bring their youth development workshops to Peace Corps communities.
