The Youth in Action (YiA) program is a six-year program implemented by Save the Children in partnership with the MasterCard foundation. YiA works to empower approximately 40,000 out-of school youth between the ages of 12 and 18 in five countries: Egypt, Ethiopia, Uganda, Malawi, and Burkina Faso. The YiA program enhances youth resources and skills to enable them to select and pursue a viable career pathway.
The purpose of this qualitative Tracer study, a retrospective study of youth who participated in the program and graduated at least nine months before data collection, is to understand youth perspectives on how their participation in YiA Ethiopia influenced their livelihood opportunities and pathways at least nine months after graduating from the program.
