Youth-serving organizations (YSOs) provide critical services and support to youth yet many have little knowledge of positive youth development (PYD) or view these concepts as abstract and difficult to operationalize. Please join FHI 360 and Youth Power Learning for an introduction to the new Youth Programming Assessment Tool (YPAT), the first tool that provides youth-serving organizations in developing countries with concrete steps and examples for how to improve their programming based on the Positive Youth Development (PYD) approach. The tool sets standards of best practice against which YSOs can evaluate their own practices and guides YSOs through reflecting on their programming and creating actionable priorities to improve their youth programming. The YPAT can be used to promote reflection among key program staff and youth beneficiaries on programming practices, generate data to inform program improvement, and gain youth perspectives on program services.
The YPAT launch will take place at FHI 360 on Tuesday July 9, 2019, from 9:00 to 10:30 am EDT, and we would love to have you join us. The event will consist of a brief presentation on its purpose and how it was developed followed by participants using the YPAT to reflect on the youth programming that they implement or have implemented, determining their strengths and areas of improvement. The session will conclude with a discussion on how the YPAT can be integrated into participants’ programs.
