Toolkit: Designing Pathways with Young People

When it comes to designing programs and services that support young people navigating education and career pathways, their voices and lived experiences should serve as our guide. Designing Pathways with Young People is a toolkit that will help youth-serving professionals like you, including program leaders, researchers, communicators, and grantmakers, center and apply the lived experiences of young people in your day-to-day work and practices. The toolkit features design principles, interactive tools, resources and recommendations informed by Equitable Futures’ Striving to Thriving research, as well as tools that will enable you to share the research with colleagues. You can use the assessment tool to evaluate your organization’s progress towards centering youth voices and advancing equity, then explore voices from the field, the youth quote library and other tools to help you take action.
