We are the change: a simple guide to youth-led social accountability

There are more than 1.8 billion young people on the planet. This is a mighty number. What if organisations worked in a way that harnessed the collective strengths, knowledge and insights of young people to ensure they have real decision-making power? This is how real change can happen.

Young people know their situations best, so who better to design interventions for young people than them?

This guide is designed for both youth-led organisations and civil society organisations that want to know more about youth-led social accountability and are interested in using it in their organisations and programmes.

In this toolkit you will find:

  • Descriptions of youth-led social accountability in theory and practice
  • The five key steps to use youth-led social accountability successfully
  • Resources available to guide you
  • Discussion of the potential challenges of taking an youth-led social accountability approach and some solutions
  • Real-life examples of interventions in action like community scorecards
