NET-MED Youth builds the capacities of young women and men in order to empower them to participate in revising national legislation on youth, to advocate for the development of national youth strategies and policies and to lobby for the sound implementation of these.


We support the role of youth organizations as monitoring entities that work towards improving the design, implementation and evaluation mechanisms (access, effectiveness, efficiency and equity) of policies, strategies and programmes addressing youth skill development needs and labor market transitions.
