Q&A: How to Engage Youth, According to PSI Young Designers

Since A360’s launch in 2016, young people have shown us that the best solutions for adolescent sexual and reproductive health (SRH) programs come from when young people lead the way. As A360 shifts into the project’s next phase –focused on institutionalizing A360’s girl-centered approach to contraceptive programming—we’re revisiting A360’s MYE strategy: what’s worked and what needs extra muscle.

To get there, A360 young designers are leading the charge.

Led by youth for youth, 45 A360 young leaders across Ethiopia, Tanzania and Nigeria convened for a two-day conference to assess if and how young people felt meaningfully engaged by A360, and outline recommendations for where A360’s MYE strategy should go next.

  • How should A360 update and strengthen its MYE strategy?
  • What should adults know about working in partnership with young people?
  • And what unique perspective can young people offer on what it looks like for youth to engage youth?

We interviewed three young designers who organized the conference. Listen to their Q&A here.
