Adolescents are uniquely positioned to contribute to the design and delivery of effective programs and services. Policymakers, program managers, and service providers need to include adolescents as much as possible when designing, planning, implementing, delivering, and monitoring youth-responsive nutrition programs and services. If you have examples of policies, programs, services, guidance, evidence, and tools related to the engagement of adolescents in the design, implementation, delivery or evaluation of nutrition programs and services, please send them to info@advancingnutrition.org.
