Empower Refugee Youth: Youth Education Programme

The Global Refugee Youth Consultations in 22 countries, organised by UNHCR and the Women’s Refugee Commission in 2015 and 20161 , brought a request from refugee youth for UNHCR and partners to ensure that young refugees are given opportunities to shape their own futures, and develop the skills they need during displacement and beyond. The importance of post-primary education is expressed throughout the Seven Core Actions for Refugee Youth emerging from the Global Refugee Youth Consultations, including addressing the need to empower youth through meaningful engagement, as well as to recognise, utilise, and develop youth capacities and skills.
