Youth Violence and Resilience in Honduras and Northeast Africa

Monday, June 22

3:30-5:00 pm EDT
GWU Lindner Family Commons, Room 602
1957 E Street

Washington, D.C.  

Very little research and programming exists on the resilience of young people in North America, much less in other regions. Little attempt has been made to compare and contrast youth resilience in various regions, for the purpose of sharing experiences and lessons learned.

At this session, the Education Development Center (EDC) will present findings on youth violence and resilience from their recent study conducted in Honduras and Northern Kenya using the Child and Youth Resilience Measure (CYRM-28).

Panelists from the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA), Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, and USAID will comment on the study and discuss its implications for youth programming and policy priorities for the two regions.
