  1. Scaling Up via NGO Capacity Building Maryanne Pribila, MPH Technical Officer, YouthNet/FHI

  2. Assessment in Eastern Europe and Central Asia • Many groups working in PE without coordination • Focus on awareness raising, not behavior change • Varying capacity among NGOs • Duplicative materials • Lack of standards • Lack of active support by authorities • Focus on general population youth

  3. Goal of Y-PEER: To strengthen institutional capacity of NGOs to improve the quality of youth peer education programs • Network creation to link stakeholders • Resources & tools made available for translation and cultural adaptation • International trainings and meetings • Youth participation and partnerships with adults

  4. Accomplishmentsin EE & CA2002-2005 • 4 million young people reached • 7,000 peer educators trained • 300+ NGOs joined the network • 27 countries adopted and adapted Y-PEER tools • Almost 10 countries self-sustain their activities

  5. Network Creation • Varied designs • Established to meet the local needs of the NGOs and stakeholders participating • Linked through in-person meetings and training events • Utilize online resources and materials • Participate in Y-PEER Global activities

  6. Tools for Eastern Europe & Central Asia • PE TOT Manual • Advocacy Kit • Exercise Cards • CyberPeer: A Computer-Based Learning Tool for Peer Educators (March)

  7. Global Peer Education Toolkit • Builds upon existing Y-PEER tools • Seeks to fill gaps and demand from NGOs • Developed using research and evidence from the field • Shares global examples • Intended to be adapted locally

  8. Components of PE Toolkit • Training of Trainers Manual (revised) • Standards for Peer Education Programmes • Theatre-Based Techniques for Youth Peer Education: A Training Manual • Performance Improvement: A Guide for Managers • Assessment Tool for Youth Peer Education Programmes

  9. Linked by a website:www.youthpeer.org

  10. Country Level Lessons Successful Networks: Challenged Networks: • Linked to an office • Strong focal points • Multiple donors support activities • Materials adapted and translated • Lack of resources • Dominated by 1or 2 NGOs • Competition among NGOs • Single donor drives activities

  11. Y-PEER Expansion • Popularity of peer education methodology to reach youth • Global need for increased quality and focus on behavior change • Demand from other regions • Lessons learned from Y-PEER in EE & CA • Tools and resources available

  12. Where? • Arab States (UNFPA) • Middle East (Syria, Jordan, Palestine) • Northern Africa (Algeria, Egypt, Djibouti, Morocco, Sudan, Tunisia, Yemen) • East Africa(YouthNet/FHI) - Tanzania & Kenya

  13. Initial Steps • Stock Take - assessment • Invitations to global activities • Follow-on meetings to grow network

  14. Lessons to be Applied • Strategy is important, not a superstructure • Personal relationships are key to start • Linkages provide wide opportunities • Government • Other youth outreach (MTV, services, schools) • Event driven networks have potential • Trickle down M&E is needed early on

  15. Continuous Challenges • Growing networks, not single organizations • Growing organizations, not individuals • Building youth leaders, not professional youth • Perceived competition among NGOs • Sharing successes among multiple mandates • Finding ways to reach NGOs with limited Internet access
