The videos have been mainly created as training tools for the development sector - International Non-governmental Organizations, development firms, USAID and other funders. However if you are from a private social enterprise, or a young person yourself seeking to make change, you may find the videos useful as a guide to leading development in your community.
The series highlights key initiatives led by young people working together with Restless Development. Each video includes young people’s perspectives on how and why to involve them in programming, and tips for doing so. Some videos in the series have been created by young people themselves in their countries. We hope it will inspire and inform you, and be used to influence those interested in learning more about young people leading change.
You can watch these videos in the order they appear, or they can be watched separately. Additionally, at the end of the playlist you’ll see three short teaser videos, these provide a snapshot of the three longer videos shot in Nepal, Tanzania and Uganda.
