Much of the focus of youth economic empowerment has been on older/out-of-school youth. CARE's newly launched adolescent empowerment work redefines what we mean by “economic empowerment” by focusing on in-school adolescents and tailoring approaches to adolescents including facilitating reflective dialogues to redress gender norms that hinder adolescent empowerment.

Four features characterize this new program:
• Transdisciplinary: synthesizing evidence/approaches from youth leadership, sexual and reproductive health, and economic empowerment.
• Data-driven: measuring empowerment through structured and unstructured evidence.
• Technologically innovative: harnessing ICT for empowerment, not testing technology.
• Adaptive: building feed-back loops from evidence to systematically strengthen programming outputs.
