Truly understanding youth sentiment on issues such as education, employment, health is critical for designing youth and equity-centric solutions. We are proud to partner with Shujaaz because of their unique focus and commitment to listening and lifting youth voices. In addition to engaging with youth, Shujaaz is a trusted resource for diverse stakeholders on the state of youth. Its COVID-19 Barometers and Compass series provide a platform for policymakers, funders and decision-makers to hear and deeply listen to the voices of young people.
Like Imaginable Futures, at Shujaaz Inc, we think it’s time to re-imagine new forms of training and education. Young people in our network have found peer-to-peer learning, community meetups and networking really effective, so that’s something we’re working hard on. But there’s a lot more innovation, research and design to be done here – how can we reimagine and revalue training for a generation facing a new kind of economy and ensure they can flourish?
