Youth Forward Committee

YFC is a national-level youth sector policy engagement group aimed at providing mechanisms to link the Youth Forward initiative to national policy processes and influential stakeholders on issues of youth in agriculture.

This strategic partnership is comprised of Office of the Prime Minister (OPM), Ministry of Agriculture Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF), Ministry of Gender Labour and Social Development (MGLSD), Ministry of Trade, Industry and Cooperatives (MTIC), National Planning Authority (NPA), Ministry of Education, Sports, Science and Technology (MOEST), Private Sector Foundation of Uganda (PSFU), Uganda Manufacturers Association (UMA), National Youth Council (NYC), Makerere University (MUK), Centenary Bank, Implementing Partners (Y.E.T.A and DYNAMIC) and Youth Representatives. The YFC meets three times a year.

 

Learning Partnership

The Youth Forward Learning Partnership is led by Overseas Development Institute (ODI), working with Uganda based Development Research and Training (DRT) and Ghana based Participatory Development Associates (PDA).

The learning partnership works to bring coherence to the overall learning agenda of the Youth Forward initiative by developing and sharing knowledge to address learning questions at program, country and sector levels. The learning partnership enhances evidence-based understanding of the needs of youth, and how program models fit the local context to meet these needs and shape economic opportunities for young women and men in Ghana and Uganda.

The learning partnership also facilitates policy dialogue and engagement of issues of youth in agriculture at the country level through multi-stakeholder dialogue.
