Program Summary

Project Name: The Youth Engagement Network (YEN): Strengthening Youth Engagement in Sexual Health Programs

Key Priority Area: Youth Engagement

Project Overview: Education, Training and Research Associates will establish, coordinate, and support a multidisciplinary and diverse network of organizational and youth partners to develop, test, refine, evaluate, and disseminate effective youth engagement (YE) innovations for sexual health programs. The Youth Engagement Network (YEN) will use a trauma-informed, youth-centered, research-driven approach to 1) increase the number and effective coordination of stakeholders committed to youth engagement; and 2) increase the number and accessibility of effective youth engagement interventions. To achieve these goals, the YEN will distribute subawards to partner organizations to develop, test, and refine youth engagement innovations and contribute to a Learning Agenda on youth engagement.  The impact of the YEN will be measured by the number and effective coordination of stakeholders committed to YE and the number and accessibility of YE innovations.
