Understanding youth pathways from adolescence to adulthood is important. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Youth Resilience, Inclusion and Empowerment (Y-RIE) programme, which was launched in Grenada in March 2023, is conducting research aimed at improving the understanding of experiences and challenges which youth in Grenada face, and what can be done to strengthen their resilience.
At Y-RIE’s launch, government ministers highlighted the importance of data to guide the design of effective and impactful programs for young people. In keeping with this approach, this research initiative will serve as a foundation for the Y-RIE programme’s partnership and collaboration efforts with the Government of Grenada and other development practitioners.
The Government of Grenada and the USAID Y-RIE programme will use findings to better understand what adjustments to programs and services are most needed to ensure youth in Grenada are supported effectively in the future. The findings will also guide the development of strategies and programmes to address factors that place young people at risk of involvement in crime and violence, and strengthen their resilience.
If you are 10 – 17, please encourage your parent or guardian to allow you to participate in the survey. For persons 18 and over please consider participating and sharing your views as this survey will be used to design programs to promote youth opportunities and inclusion. An orientation session for research enumerators who will collect data in communities across Grenada will begin on Tuesday, 30 May 2023.
Data collection will begin in the first week of June for a period of 6 weeks.
