Private Sector Toolkit for Working with Youth
Restless Development, UN Programme on Youth
This toolkit explores cooperation between youth and the private sector, both in principle and in practice, in order to:
- highlight the role of youth as social actors, and increase general understanding of young people’s great potential as development partners;
- inspire the private sector to partner with youth by showcasing several case studies and demonstrating the economic advantage of investing in youth, in contrast to the cost of under-investment; and
- provide initial guidance on facilitating private sector engagement with young people, and the formation of meaningful partnerships, to better influence development processes worldwide.
