Professional Youth Humanitarian Program (PYHP)


UK / 2019- ongoing

The innovative Professional Youth Humanitarian Program (PYHP) was designed to transform the youth humanitarian action from random emotions-based action into a steady visioned and professional action.

The program provides participants with comprehensive and detailed insights into humanitarian action, enabling a deeper understanding of humanitarian policies, principles and values, as well as a wider wider understanding of the sector.

Participants are able to develop leadership, management and practical skills for their future roles in the humanitarian sector.

At HAD one of our key focus areas is empowering and strengthening the future of our humanitarian sector and developing the leaders of tomorrow through Talent Development.
