The Educational Quality Improvement Program 3 (EQUIP3) is a Leader-with-Associate Award that is designed to improve earning, learning, and skill development opportunities for out-of-school youth in developing countries. The program collaborates with local youth serving organizations, including nongovernmental organizations, government agencies, private businesses, and education agencies to engage out-of-school and disenfranchised youth in addressing the social service and economic development needs of their communities, while helping young people acquire the skills they need to create productive lives.
