Toolkit: Designing Pathways with Young People

When young people’s experiences, aspirations, and goals are taken into consideration, we are more likely to produce tools and services that successfully support young people as they work to reach the goals they set for themselves. – Striving to Thriving

About the Toolkit

This toolkit will help you center the emotional and lived experiences of young people in programmatic approaches to designing or influencing career pathways. The tools are organized into three categories: 

  • Action: Find tools and resources you can use to centering youth voices and advance equity in your work and practices.
  • Voices: Listen to first-person testimonials of young people and the adults working to support their pathways.
  • Research: Access research on career pathways with Black, Latinx, and young people experiencing poverty.

Get Started

These resources and tools were created in partnership with the Equitable Futures Advisory Team who generously shared their on-the-ground experiences of working with young people.
