Youth Have It Framework™
WHAT DOES THE RESEARCH SHOW?
Our research shows that the above theory does not hold and that we need to go deeper into the root cause issues of youth unemployment
OUR SOLUTION – FOUNDATIONAL FRAMEWORK
- To shape youth development policy, investment and future interventions, Lucha Lunako™ proposes a new holistic youth development and support framework
- This framework yields both an immediate benefit to the individual, but importantly, also influences and affects the individual’s long-term trajectory towards a successful and fulfilled life.
- The framework identifies three core constructs as imperative to the development process: I have it, You have it, Youth have it™, which translates into a development focus of "self", "others" and "work and broader life context". Within each of these constructs, we have the 5C model of indicators for Positive Youth Development (PYD), to enable us to categorise concepts, skills, and attributes for development.
The foundational development framework, in line with our key guiding principles, proposes a holistic development and support framework that can yield both an immediate benefit to the individual, but importantly, also influence and affect the individual’s long term trajectory towards a successful and fulfilled life.
