In Myanmar, LP4Y opened its first Training & Development Center in 2019 in Hlaing Thar Yar. The TDC was unforced to close due to the unstable political situation in November 2021.

Despite the political situation, the Youth still have the opportunity to do internships and work on their professional integration.
