A Toolkit on Quality Standards for Youth Policy

21/03/2017

Welcome to this toolkit on quality standards, a practical tool for youth organisations to assess the state of youth policy in their context, whether it is national, regional, local, or European.

This toolkit provides you with tools, tips and tricks to look at youth policy and identify what is working well and what is not.

The quality standards for youth policy developed in this toolkit provide an adaptable framework for measuring the quality of youth policy in different contexts (local, national, European).

This publication has been developed for youth organisations and young people, primarily member organisations of the Youth Forum (or their members), but it can be used as a reference by any other youth organisations. The toolkit is currently available to download in English, Lithuanian, Spanish and Portuguese.
