 Under the PROSPECTS Partnership, the ILO, UNHCR and UNICEF are coordinating a new initiative entitled “Advancing Young People’s Engagement and Meaningful Participation in the PROSPECTS Partnership”. The objective is to empower and meaningfully engage young people in forced displacement contexts so that they develop their skills and confidence to lead socio-economic and cultural activities, start an enterprise, address protection concerns, volunteer in their communities, advocate on issues that are important to them, and provide input to programming, including PROSPECTS.
