PRESENTATION: Innovative Methods for Sourcing Youth Participants for Employment Programs, Sep 2016
Effective sourcing of participants is critical for supporting quality at scale for youth employment programs. In this workshop, Education For Employment (EFE) will present three tested methods for sourcing marginalized youth populations for participation in employment programs: social media-based approaches, high-touch family-focused sourcing strategies, and outreach workshops. In addition, The MasterCard Foundation will present lessons learned from the Foundation’s experience supporting youth employment programs in Africa. EFE’s experience applying tested approaches in Jordan, Tunisia, and Morocco will be discussed, and evaluative approaches for determining the relative effectiveness of each strategy will be examined. Special attention will be paid to gender aspects of each sourcing strategy. This workshop will adopt a Think Tank approach.
