The toolkit includes step-by-step modules to carry out a youth well-being diagnosis and includes practical examples of common youth policies and programmes in the areas of employment, education and skills, health and civic participation. It is divided into two parts:

  • Part I presents the conceptual framework that underlines the toolkit and describes the different challenges and needs of youth as they go through transitions in life.

  • Part II, which is intended for technical experts and policy analysts, provides a step-bystep methodological guide to carry out in-depth analyses on the situation of youth and to profile vulnerable youth using empirical evidence. It includes six modules that can be used at different phases in the policy-making cycle.
