Supporting economic opportunities for
youth in fragile settings
Six questions you should ask
when developing economic programmes for young people.
– What are you aiming for?
Are you aiming to create employment or provide additional sources of income?
Does your programme focus on economic activities as a means or as an end?
– Do you know what they want?
Do you know what young people need - and want- to become effective economic actors?
How do your programmes tie in with the needs and ambitions of young people?
– Beyond your control?
How do you address the factors limiting young people’s economic possibilities?
– Linking back to violence?
How do your programmes reduce violence?
