This Executive Summary of the Learning Brief makes the case for investing in young people and presents GOYN’s youth engagement approach.
GOYN’s ‘The Future is Young’ Learning Series seeks to identify and present scalable solutions for youth economic opportunity that can inspire others to act. This second installment makes the case for investing in young people and presents the cornerstone of GOYN’s approach: the creation of Collaborative Infrastructure for scaled impact and systemic change.
The Executive Summary of this Learning Brief dives into the core practices of youth engagement, GOYN opens up the world to a new and hopeful reality where there is a mindset shift around OY and a willingness to learn from them as they express their needs, challenges, and aspirations. We hope these examples will bring to life the power of the youth engagement approach we see at work every day in GOYN communities, and we look forward to sharing more of our learnings in future installments of this series.
