Very young adolescents (10-14 years old) are at a critical age range in which most young people begin to achieve puberty, turn increasingly to peers as reference points, and experiment with social risk-taking behavior. These compelling discoveries suggest that there is a need to begin much sooner to help us all become aware of, question, resist, and redefine ideas about gender.

Very Young Adolescence (VYA) 2.0  was originally developed by Equimundo in collaboration with the University of Malawi College of Medicine and implemented by the Centre for Alternatives for Victimized Women and Children (CAVWOC). The intervention was developed with and for Malawian very young adolescents ages 10-14.
