How to use Review for improved outcomes for unemployed youth
Review has four important steps to improve youth employment outcomes and maximise program effectiveness:
Design + Plan
To succeed, youth employment programs need a clear roadmap that shows desired impact and how impact is linked to program resources, activities and outcomes.
Develop + Deliver
There are ten characteristics that should be included in youth employment activities to ensure maximum effectiveness.
Regular measurement of outcomes is a way of confirming that youth employment programs are meeting their goals. It also supports evidence-based program iteration.
Learn + Iterate
Taking the time to learn from the data means better employment outcomes for young people.
