Regional Adolescent and Youth Advisory Board
The Regional Adolescent and Youth Advisory board is an initiative that promotes the participation and engagement of young people in decision-making processes on issues of concern to them. This group engages vulnerable adolescents and youth 18-24 years from various nationalities. 121 vulnerable young people from this group have been trained as researchers, undertaking their own research to enable them to become their own change makers. Their research is building an evidence base that informs programmes for young people in the region.
No Lost Generation Student Chapters
The US Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration has used an innovative mechanism of a virtual internship program to establish No Lost Generation student chapters, to engage university students in the humanitarian response to the global refugee crisis. The student chapters educate and inform their local communities about refugee issues, raise funds, and support locally resettled refugees.
There are now more than 53 No Lost Generation student chapters, based in the US and beyond.
