Youth Voice

To tackle youth unemployment, young people must have a greater say in the policies that directly affect them.  Recognizing the importance of youth voice, S4YE has formed the S4YE Youth Advisory Group (YAG) that consists of 17 talented and enterprising global youth. YAG provides input on the design of youth employment programs of S4YE and the World Bank, engages in S4YE’s knowledge work on the youth employment agenda, gains exposure and visibility in an international network and learns about governance and contributes to decision-making for the coalition. S4YE taps into their youth perspective and ensures young people have a voice in all activities of the coalition.

S4YE recently launched the YAG COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Blog series which highlights the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on young people and discusses the approaches by YAG members to provide solutions to the effects of the crisis in their local community. You can find the latest blogs here:
