JBS International presented findings on how lottery-based concepts can be used to design greater equity in the access to workforce development programs under the Monitoring and Evaluation track at the 2013 Global Youth Economic Conference. Caroline Fawcett examined the fairness in selection of participants to youth workforce programs, and identified the red-flags of "unfairness". Drawing on existing evidence of lottery-based programs, this resource examines specific lottery concept that have been used in the past, and can be used in the future to design fairer access to youth workforce projects.
