How we are working with youth: fighting poverty and social injustices

ActionAid’s strategy 2012-2017 (People’s Action to End Poverty) commits us to working with young people. In doing so, we will:

  • Mobilise youth to take sustained action;
  • Work with poor, marginalised and excluded groups of young people – in all their diversity;
  • Collaborate with a global youth movement of school and university students, acting in solidarity;
  • Look closely at livelihoods options among out-of-school youth, and people making the transition from school to work;
  • Open up spaces for youth in decision-making structures – including our own.
