Young people can be powerful catalyst for the change they want to see. In your work addressing their rights and needs, you need to acknowledge their right to participate and engage them meaningfully in your work. Furthermore, it is important to involve them in broader programmatic efforts and advocacy efforts towards policymaking. Girls, adolescents, and youth should be driving actors throughout the programme cycle, including in the programme design, development, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation. Adolescents led- and informed advocacy is a right and critical for systemic shifts to positively affect all adolescents. Quality youth participation should be transparent, voluntary, youth-friendly, , relevant, respectful, inclusive, safe, accountable, and supported by trained adults. An example of a youth-led process and how this can benefit both youth and the your programme(s), can be read in this booklet about our learning project’s youth-led research experience.
