WEBINAR: Cross-Sectoral Skills for Youth, September 14, 2016


Targeting, recruitment, and retention strategies for youth-skills development: how do skills-building initiatives ensure youth participation?

Skills-building initiatives for youth have become a prominent component of youth development work in developing countries, working across a number of sectors and themes. However, ensuring participation of youth beneficiaries that are most likely to benefit from these skill-building initiatives remains a challenge for many. Some program implementers have taken deliberate steps to facilitate effective targeting, recruitment, and retention of youth in skills-based programs.

This webinar, organized by the Cross-Sectoral Skills for Youth Community of Practice under YouthPower Learning, will feature presentations from a number of innovators and researchers working on skills-based youth development. Panelists will provide insights based on their own experience, and will elaborate on challenges and effective approaches to promote effective targeting, recruitment, and retention of youth participation in skills-building initiatives.
