PSI youth programs are pivoting in response to COVID-19, with young designers driving ship.
Across our youth-powered contraceptive programs, our young designers’ insights continue to support us in responding to girls’ concerns about their health, their needs amidst the pandemic and their visions for their lives.
Listen to young designers from PSI’s flagship adolescent sexual and reproductive health project Adolescents 360 (A360) as they share how they’ve supported A360 to create, and integrate adolescent-resonant COVID-19 messaging into the contraceptive conversation; determine mediums (from SMS to radio) to reach and serve girls; build advocacy capacity; and adapt monitoring and learning to efficiently track efforts and tailor solutions as COVID-19 and A360 evolve.
Across all of our youth programs, we’ve learned that the best solutions for adolescent-responsive programming come from young people, themselves. And that hasn’t changed in light of COVID-19.
