USAID’s Youth Power Action project has conducted a study that identifies a core set of soft skills that predict positive outcomes across the fields of workforce development, violence prevention, and sexual and reproductive health. This builds on the Workforce Connections report, Key Soft Skills that Foster Youth Workforce Success, highlighted at last year’s Summit. This session will present the result of Key Skills for Cross-Sectoral Youth Outcomes study that identifies the most important soft skills relating to violence prevention and reproductive health.  The panel will include experts in violence prevention and reproductive health to comment on the findings of the study.  Participants will engage with findings from both studies, and implications for youth programming.
