Posted Jun 07, 2018 | Brookings Institution, Kendra Dupuy, Sosina Bezu, Are Knudsen, et al

To function as adults in society and navigate the social, economic, and political challenges of the 21st century, young people must be able to think critically, pursue economic opportunities, navigate and use new technologies, and process information to advance individual and societal development. In their study for the Brookings Institution, Kendra Dupuy, Sosina Bezu, Are Knudsen, et al focus on non-formal life skills programmess in developing countries that benefit adolescent girls; discuss what these programs teach and why; and how political, social, cultural, and economic contexts determine what skills are viewed as most important for girls.
