The Learning Curve

The main aim of the guide is to offer guidance and assessment tools for youth workers, in the peacebuilding field, to be able to better plan, monitor and evaluate their work and learn from it.
Why? Because youth organisations often prioritise action to reflection. Yet, they find it hard to explain what they have achieved. With limited time and resources for reflection, they struggle to become more strategic and improve the quality of their work.
How? By providing two intertwined steps:
  1. Assessing your knowledge & practices on 3 levels (personal, project and organisational)
  2. Learning and improving your knowledge and practices on these 3 levels

Context - The guide  has been developed in the context of a longterm partnership called Youth Impact: Strengthening Organizational Capacities to Build Peace in Europe – funded by the Erasmus+ Programme – implemented by the International Secretariat of the  United Network of Young Peacebuilders in partnership with five European UNOY members, namely Service Civil International (SCI), Fundación Catalunya Voluntaria (FCV), Peace Action, Training and Research Institute of Romania (PATRIR), Centro Internazionale per la Promozione dell’Educazione e lo Sviluppo (CEIPES) and European Intercultural Forum (EIF).
This guide is based on an in-depth research and analysis conducted by the six organisations mentioned above. The research focused on the current monitoring, evaluation and learning practices in youth peace organisations in Europe, and identified what needs to be done to improve them.
