The following chapter discusses a two-year professional development (PD) project in Uganda encouraged by a Fulbright Flex Research Grant and a collaboration between one middle level teacher educator from Ohio and four teacher education professionals from Uganda. The ultimate goal of the project was to prepare teachers of young adolescents to help them gain the developmental assets necessary to support them to stay in school through 7th grade and to secondary schools. The chapter gives an overview of Uganda, education in Uganda, teacher education in Uganda, a PD opportunity provided to 15 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th grade teachers, and the institutions that collaborated to provide this PD. The PD provided addressed issues of young adolescent development, menstrual hygiene management, sexual reproductive health, technology and learning, digital literacy, and personal narrative writing.
