Global Communities’ Cooperative Leadership Engagement Advocacy and Research (CLEAR)+ project (2023-2028), is a USAID funded Cooperative Development Program (CDP) aimed at advocating for the development of worker cooperatives with a focus on youth employment. CLEAR+ promotes the cooperative enabling environment and improved business strategies and performance through local Business Service Providers (BSPs) using a market systems approach (MSA). The project is committed to integrating core principles such as gender equality and positive youth development (PYD) into cooperative development. The CLEAR+ project has three primary objectives which work jointly to strengthen the cooperative systems in Kenya & Guatemala.
