Mission/Strategy

The objective of EvalYouth Task Force 1 (TF1) is to increase the involvement of YEEs in VOPE activities, governance, and leadership.

The rationales for this work are:

  • To motivate YEEs to become more involved in VOPE governance, rather than only participating in VOPE activities, while also taking into account certain regional dimensions
  • To work with VOPEs to bolster the inclusion of YEEs in their governance bodies and capacity building programs
  • To contribute to strengthening individual and institutional capacities of YEEs and VOPEs.

To meet its objectives, TF1 implements four main types of activities: webinars, EY chapter success stories, toolkit development and a video campaign. Each activity is governed and implemented by a Working Group.
