ABSTRACT

How Are Youth Employment Programs Adapting to COVID-19?   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "In this Knowledge Brief, we highlight different ways in which youth employment projects in S4YE's [Solutions for Youth Employment] community of practice, the Impact Portfolio [hyperlink], are adapting their strategies and delivery models in response to COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. Based on recent and ongoing discussions with our partners, we see six main trends that programs are using to maintain operational and programmatic continuity. These include scaling of virtual operations, crowdsourcing ideas from youth, accelerating remote learning, encouraging youth voice, increased support for micro, small and medium enterprises, and leveraging new growth opportunities. Overall, we see a deepening and widening of the ways our partners are using digital technology to be effective and to reach more youth in these challenging times."
