Step Up, Link Up, Speak Up: Mentoring toolkit
Toolkit to support mentoring work for youth advocacy
A key innovation of the Link Up project is youth-to-youth mentoring.
Link Up’s mentoring programme is designed to build the confidence of young people to participate in policy processes, and to help identify and expand the knowledge, leadership skills, and abilities they feel they need to meaningfully participate in advocating for their priorities. It enables young people to become mentors for their peers, enabling all those involved to benefit from one another’s knowledge, experience and perceptions.
This toolkit was developed in collaboration with young advocates and draws on their diverse experiences of working in communities to advance their rights. It consists of three parts:
- Step Up, Link Up, Speak Up: A facilitator’s guide for a workshop on mentoring for youth advocacy
- Step Up, Link Up, Speak Up: A tool to support mentoring for youth advocacy
- Mentoring for Youth Advocacy Workshop Powerpoint
