Compensating Youth Work: Cycle 5 Recommendations

It is inappropriate for young people to spend their personal pocket money on the work they do for Donors and INGOs. The eight organisations who participated in the YIELD Hub’s 5th Collective Action Learning Cycle agreed with this and affirmed their commitment to advancing youth partnership by compensating young people for their work.

During their seven-month action-learning journey, these organisations worked together to design and implement practical solutions in the form of action-learning goals to support and improve their work on youth compensation. In this report, the group proposes a set of recommendations to support organisations that are open and willing to improve their practices and commitment to compensating youth work.
