A Guidance on Meaningful Adolescent and Youth Engagement (MAYE)

Empowering Youth: A Pathway to Meaningful Adolescent and Youth Engagement

This guidance has been created within the framework of the TACC project, “Take Action, Create the Change,” managed by the International Foundation for Y-PEER Development, and funded by the European Union.

The process was led by migration_miteinander, and it represents the second expected project result. The development of this guidance relied on the following methods:

  • Research on the topic of meaningful engagement of adolescents and youth, which involved consultations with local youth and organizations in each participating country, literature reviews, and focus groups with young people, especially those at risk of social exclusion.
  • Conducting around 100 interviews in person and online with young people from disadvantaged groups, youth workers involved in working with disadvantaged youth, decision-makers, and representatives of organizations and institutions working for youth. The objective of these interviews was to collect real-life case studies of youth participation and civic engagement from all stakeholders involved in these processes.

We express our gratitude to the youth from various regions around the globe for their valuable contributions to the creation of this collection of resources. We wish to acknowledge and thank those who dedicated their precious time to participate in interviews, focus group discussions, and the online questionnaire.

Our deepest gratitude to all the professionals, partners, and colleagues who contributed their expertise and knowledge to the development of this guidance. It underwent numerous consultations, drafts, tests, and modifications before its release to the public, with a focus on reaching youth workers and young people.

Special thanks go to the individuals who played significant roles in developing this guidance, including Carlo Alberto Italia, Solène Barbier, and Lara Villieras-Guepey from migration_miteinander e.V.; Anmar Al-rikabi and Sukaina El outa from the International Foundation for Y-PEER Development; Gizem Özöztürk Barutçu and Rolands Busers from FuturEurope; Pane Stefanov and Angela Vitanovska from Youth On Board; Magdalena Koniecko and Katarzyna Dębiec from Youth Human Impact; Amaia Garzon and Allende Solaun from CONEXX-EU; and Eman Albohtori and Bilal Almobarak and Mahmoud Younes from Support Group Network.

Together, within “TACC” project, this collaborative effort aims to Take Action and Create the Change!

Positive Youth Development (PYD) Measurement Toolkit


Purpose of this Toolkit

The Positive Youth Development Measurement Toolkit, developed by YouthPower Learning, provides guidance and resources for implementers of youth programming in LMICs to integrate PYD principles in their monitoring and evaluation (M&E) systems and effectively measure PYD outputs and outcomes within their programs. This online toolkit provides an introduction and a brief overview of the toolkit.

The overall goal of this toolkit is to help programs effectively measure PYD outcomes in order to improve program performance over time, contribute to the body of evidence on PYD, and ultimately influence multi-sector outcomes and impact of youth programming.

This PYD measurement toolkit provides the following:
1. A framework for measuring PYD;
2. A set of illustrative PYD indicators that can be applied to and across various sectors;
3. A discussion about the application of PYD framework and indicators at each phase of a program design and evaluation; 
4. A discussion about the major considerations for adapting measures cross-culturally
5. Resources and references for implementers and evaluators;

Furthermore, the toolkit provides FAQs and a PYD glossary. YouthPower Learning conducted a one-day PYD Measurement training based on the toolkit.  Slides and other resources are available for users.

The toolkit can also help program implementers, evaluators and researchers contribute to building the evidence within and across sectors on two overarching research questions:
• What is the effectiveness of PYD programs in improving outcomes for youth in LMICs?
• What are the key PYD features associated with improved outcomes for youth?

Intended Audiences
The primary audiences of this toolkit are
• implementers,
• evaluators and
• funders of youth programs (both United States Government (USG) and non-USG).

Other audiences include those in the broader PYD space such as academics or youth advocates interested in PYD measurement.
