  • Linkages provide wide opportunities

    • Government

    • Other youth outreach (MTV, services, schools)

  • Event driven networks have potential

  • Trickle down M&E is needed early on


Continuous challenges l.jpg

Continuous Challenges

  • Growing networks, not single organizations

  • Growing organizations, not individuals

  • Building youth leaders, not professional youth
