This is the second part of the Youth Participation Toolkit, coordinated by Save the Children. It contains tools, methods, tips, exercises, and training workshops for improving youth participation.
The Education for Youth Empowerment (EYE) program targets a relatively wide age group, 12 – 24 year olds, in various countries.
The toolkit is rather generic so prospective users have to consider weather tips, tools, methods, and exercises are appropriate for their intended context, culture, and age group before applying them. Even when found appropriate, you can never just copy. You always have to adapt them to your specific target group and context.
Youth participation helps young people to:
- Organize and mobilize in groups and networks
- Know their rights and how to apply them
- Build leadership skills
- Communicate and share knowledge
- Access and analyze information
- Raise their voice
