Walking the Talk: Building Mutual Understanding on Youth Engagement
A key challenge for our community is how we can build stronger mutual understanding among donors, implementers, and young leaders alike on inclusive youth engagement in development programming. Drawing from key learning takeaways from the Youth Engagement Community of Practice (CoP) 2018 focus on strategies for engaging at-risk and marginalized youth, the February CoP convening will facilitate a conversation with the aim to begin identifying concrete steps that donors and implementers can take to better coordinate and integrate inclusive youth engagement in development programs.
The Youth Engagement and Gender & PYD communities of practice are inviting a conversation between program implementers and funders to discuss how we can better support and more meaningfully engage young people in development projects.
We have four open-ended survey questions that will inform the content and outputs of this meeting.
