Session Abstract (150 words): 

Through an evidenced-based and iterative consultative process, USAID’s YouthPower Learning set a global Positive Youth Development (PYD) learning agenda to define priority questions in the field of PYD in LMICs. Its primary goal is to provide collective guidance for a common agenda to address evidence gaps and invest in evidence-building activities related to PYD. It is intended to stimulate learning and action for next steps such as determining how best to sustain effective youth policies, programs, and resources needed to implement PYD approaches at scale in the future. This poster outlines how the learning agenda was set, its key questions, and how learning agendas generally can be used to harness the contributions from the global community broadly and how this agenda can be used to advance the field of PYD specifically. Anyone who works with youth in LMICs can respond to this learning agenda and advance the PYD field.
