Progress and Sustainability in Youth-Led Development is the seventh report in the Global Youth-Led Development series. This report presents results from several, related studies on youth-led organizations in Africa and the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean, and Asia and the Pacific that received Urban Youth Fund (UYF) grants between 2009 and 2011. It also compares their experience in implementing youth programmes with comparable youth organizations that were not funded by the UYF. Through a baseline study and a follow-up study conducted two years later, it is able to examine the experience of the selected youth-led organizations over multiple years. The report looks at their programmes and how they operate; the challenges they face; the strategies they develop to meet those challenges; their hopes and plans for the future; and the benefits they accomplish for youth, their youth organizations, and the larger community.
