This webinar, organized by YouthPower Learning’s Youth Engagement and Youth in Peace and Security Communities of Practice, explores the role of youth engagement in refugee-serving programs to help increase young peoples’ capacity and agency to make decisions over the programs and policies that affect their lives. In Niger, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) is taking a multisectoral approach to refugee youth employment in Tillaberry and Diffa—combining education, protection, and livelihoods. The project is moving into its second phase, focusing on opportunities for youth to engage in agricultural value chains.
Webinar participants will learn from IRC’s work with young refugees, and discuss how these insights can inform programs elsewhere. The webinar will also reference tools that have been created to incorporate refugees in research (e.g., UNICEF’s tool on Research with Disadvantaged, Vulnerable, and/or Marginalized Adolescents, which includes specific aspects of working with refugees).
