Youth civil society is surviving not thriving. That is the message coming from this report published by The Development Alternative on International Youth Day 2019. The report sheds light on the challenges that youth civil society organisations face and what the development sector can do about them. The findings are drawn from in-depth consultations with more than 200 youth civil society organisations.

The Development Alternative is a consortium co-designing alternative ways to do development that are truly led by young people. It is funded by the UK’s Department for International Development and led by Restless Development in collaboration with seven partners including INTRAC.
