New Training Module on Adolescents and Youth Programming in Emergencies

INEE has announced a new training module:

The New Training Module on Adolescents and Youth Programming in Emergencies is part of the INEE Education in Emergencies training package.

The Adolescents and Youth Programming in Emergencies module complements the rest of the training package by promoting the specific needs, opportunities, and good programming practices of youth in emergency programs and policy decisions.  It provides tools for supporting integration and achieving quality and accessible education for all. The module consists of presentations, handouts, interactive dialogue sections, and exercises to guide participants. The module can be tailored for the beginner learner or it can be used with advanced practitioners.


The main objectives of the training module are to:

  • identify challenges and vulnerabilities specific to adolescents and youth in crisis and post-crisis situations as well as the ways in which they can make valuable contributions to their families, schools, and communities;
  • review good practices and specific recommendations for effective, quality programming for adolescents and youth; and
  • learn practical ways to promote meaningful participation for adolescents and youth in programming.

The module, which builds on a variety of youth-related INEE resources, was developed by Brooke Breazeale, in consultation with other members of the INEE Adolescents and Youth Task Team, the INEE Working Group on Minimum Standards and Network Tools, and the IASC Education Cluster.


The INEE Adolescent and Youth Task Team works to ensure a coordinated, accelerated, and evidence-based response to the educational rights, needs, and aspirations of adolescents and youth affected by crisis. The Task Team collaboratively develops resources and tools, advocates for youth-inclusive programming, and facilitates training and capacity building to help practitioners respond to youth and education challenges faced during situations of crisis and recovery.
