From Youth-Informed to Youth-Led Research and Evaluation Processes: Cross-Cultural Insights and Lessons from Senegal and the USA
AEA and the Senegalese Evaluation Association (SenEval) collaboration builds on six years of exchange and dialogue between the Youth-Focused Evaluation Topical Interest Group (YFE-TIG) at AEA and the Youth and Child Evaluation Theme Group (GT EEJ) at SenEval. The partnership aims to strengthen the ties between these groups and their broader institutions while facilitating interactions with other TIGs and GTs within the partner organizations and beyond.
For our inaugural AEA and SenEval webinar, we're excited to bring together emerging and experienced evaluators collaborating with youth on program design, strategic planning, and evaluation in Senegal and the USA. Our colleagues will present three brief case studies on youth-led processes. They will share insights on culturally representative and practical strategies to collaborate with youth, what they learned from their collaborations and notable process outcomes. Following the brief presentation, we will answer questions and engage in small discussions. The webinar will take place in English and French.
