Youth-Driven Programming in Contexts of Volatility and Protracted Crises
Published at : 03 Dec 2020
In areas where conflict and violence are present, youth are prone to become victims and/or perpetrators of violence. In these contexts, youth programs are faced with the challenge of creating responses that strengthen youth resilience to mitigate the effects of a development marred by violence and conflict. This webinar discusses alternative education, resilience, and community-based approaches for implementing and sustaining positive youth engagement programming in fragile environments. Presenters from USAID, the Education Development Center, and FHI 360 used the case study of the USAID Integrated Youth Development Activity (IYDA) in the Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
