How to meaningfully engage young people? Start by asking them.

This International Youth Day, let’s explore: what does it take to inspire young people to be ready for contraception?

There are 1.8 billion young people around the world, with nine in 10 living in low and middle income countries.

Development depends on thriving youth populations.

But despite their footprint, adolescents and youth continue to face barriers to accessing essential health services, including making – and owning – their sexual and reproductive health (SRH) choices.

The time is now to do things differently—and that starts by meaningfully engaging the young people we work with and for.

Based on their own experiences, young people have shared what it really takes to meaningfully engage young people on project teams. Dig into their thoughts by reading through their comment cards, below.
