Scaling Youth Workforce Development Outcomes by Transforming Local Systems: A Rwanda Case Study
This case study from Rwanda explores the key components that drive improvements in youth skills and employment—equitably and at scale. To guide its analysis, the study uses the Youth Systems Framework, a tool developed by the Youth Systems CollaborativeSM, which is a network of international organizations committed to knowledge-sharing around youth systems change in low- and middle-income countries. As a member of the Youth Systems Collaborative, EDC conducted this research to understand how shifts in Rwanda’s workforce development system occurred over a 10-year period. It also explores the role that EDC’s programming played in that change process and considers the role of donor-funded programs in international workforce development.
