— theme: Youth Employment, Youth Employment Policies and Programmes, Skills for Youth, Most vulnerable Youth
— country: Asia, Pacific
— type: Lessons Learned

UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) has published a collection of testimonies from young people participating in community education and development programmes either as learners and facilitators. The testimonies provide excellent illustration of how youth-focused education and development programmes in Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, New Zealand, the Philippines and Timor-Leste have contributed to literacy and youth empowerment. The case studies presented quality and accessible education beyond primary school; skills training that prepares young people for dignified employment (India and Timor-Leste); education that expands horizons and creates an awareness of the power to shape one’s own future.
