Youth Capacity Building
To support the development of leadership skills among youth.
This initiative was successful in engaging youth and achieving advocacy outcomes because it viewed youth participation as a process rather than as an end. CID used an approach similar to the engagement scale presented. The Center first provided training to participants and then fostered further engagement by encouraging collaboration among participants and supporting the ongoing advocacy efforts of the youth participants. In addition, the capacity building opportunities provided enabled them to effectively engage stakeholders and decision-makers on these youth-related issues. These opportunities allowed the participants to become increasingly engaged and achieve impactful outcomes, which would also encourage their continued participation.
