About the event
To achieve equitable, positive outcomes for youth on a large scale, practitioners, advocates, and researchers agree that a more systemic approach is necessary. Fragmented projects are no longer sufficient - we need to think and act in terms of the system as a whole, creating sustainable ecosystems with diverse stakeholders and prioritizing the needs of young people at the center.
The Youth Systems Collaborative, a network of international organizations launched in 2018, offers a training program that aims to advance this vision by providing a practical framework, tools, and a collaborative space for participants to think through the challenges of systems work. The training program is designed to help participants work with the YSC’s Youth Systems Framework, which covers domains of systems change such as policy, practices, mindsets, and resources, as well as change enablers like stakeholder collaboration and iterative learning.
This interactive workshop includes systems modeling, storytelling, reflection, and discussion. Participants will gain valuable insights on the current status of youth systems work globally, as well as on their own case studies. They will also acquire a useful framework to share with colleagues to enhance systems work in their respective communities. Join us and be part of creating positive change for youth on a global scale.
NOTE: This training only has 30 available slots and is only available to registered participants of the 2023 Global YEO Summit. Spots are first-come, first-served.
