Youth Engagement Subgroup (YES)
The Working Group
Engaging young people during the COVID-19 pandemic and involving them effectively in risk communication efforts has been a critical part of the response.
Failure to connect and communicate well with young people during this pandemic affects their ability to protect themselves, their loved ones and their communities, and can erode their trust in healthcare and other institutions.
The Youth Engagement Working Group was created to enable collaboration and support a wide range of organisations with the development and rolling out of risk communication and community engagement (RCCE) specific interventions and strategies relevant to young people’s contexts and realities. The group is part of the RCCE Collective Service.
