The Raks Thai Foundation’s Youth Leadership Development (YLD) program instills leadership and occupational skills in underprivileged teenagers in the Kumphawapi District of Udon Thani, Thailand, however it has not fully developed. Our goal was to enhance the presence of these skills by evaluating teaching resources and marketing channels for local schools participating in the program. We interviewed teachers, guardians, students, customers, and vendors to create a program guide, which provides basic business concepts and activities to teach students skills they need to thrive in Udon Thani.
