The Dominican Republic UNDP Country Office supports the participation of young Dominicans in public institutions in the country.
Youth Auditors Project, conducted by the Dominican Republic Chamber of Auditors and UNDP, aimed to contribute to capacity building of human resources from a different perspective. Before joining the workplace, 23 youth received training in auditing and law in order to effectively perform their work in the Chamber of Accounts.
These innovative and inexpensive initiatives promote youth inclusion in different work and decision-making spaces; and help to develop their skills and leadership, in order to strengthen democratic culture and transparent management..
