Positive youth development (PYD) programs, which have a long history in the Western context have been shown to improve outcomes for young people across multiple sectors.  The YouthPower Learning team recently undertook a broad review of peer reviewed and grey literature to learn what PYD programming has been conducted in low- and middle-income countries, and to assess the evidence that PYD strategies work in this context. This presentation includes a thumbnail sketch of the variety of programs we discovered and some highlights of successful PYD programs in low- and middle-income countries.
