This session shares with readers a new Learning Resource developed by Youth Business International (YBI) and the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF) of the Inter-American Development Bank that presents a range of approaches, together with guidelines for practical application, in each of seven core elements in a youth entrepreneurship program: Selection of beneficiaries, Technical skills training; Life skills training; Business advisory services; Mentoring; Access to finance; and Monitoring and evaluation.  The toolkit was developed under a regional project in Latin America and the Caribbean known as the Youth Entrepreneurship Program YEP. 11 participating YEP members shared the processes and concrete tools they use.
