A Systematic Review of Positive Youth Development Programs in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

Lab Area: Women's Health

Categories: Monitoring & Evaluation and Positive Youth Development

This report presents the results of a rigorous analysis of existing evidence of positive youth development (PYD) in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Commissioned by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through the YouthPower Learning project, this systematic review aims to document how PYD approaches have been applied in LMICs, as well as what the evidence demonstrates about the effectiveness of such programs. International implementing organizations can integrate lessons learned into practice as researchers continue to build knowledge on the impacts of PYD programs.
