Generating more and better evidence on what works has been at the core of youth employment efforts over the last decade. A consistent and accurate measurement of results is essential to improve programming, scale-up action, and inform the development of future policies and programs.

This interactive session will build upon the experience of funders on outcomes measurement and stimulate a dialogue around:

• The identification and measurement of key indicators to enhance data-based decision making for youth employment interventions;

• The development of a new employment and earnings survey that leverages the cognitive interview method engaging youth to better understand their realities at work;

• Learnings from a youth employment impact evaluation portfolio to showcase how results measurement strategies can improve programming.
