Around the world young people are leading the way in solving the big economic, social and environmental challenges of our time. They are using technology, innovation, networks, optimism, and their ability to think globally, to contribute ideas for change.
Our best future will depend on how well young people are engaged to rethink our world.
This tool will help you look at how you currently engage young people, so that you harness this resource to make your organisation more successful and relevant. It will take around 15 minutes to complete. At the end you will have a report on your current approach, as well as some ideas for improvement.

Hmmm...it would appear that we don't know anything about you! If you could just scroll your way back up and fill out a few screening questions we can then identify a set of problems and challenges that typically match you as an organisation.
In this section we're asking you to identify which challenges your organisation is concerned about. You'll be asked to select from a set of six key challenge themes that organisations like yours might be confronting now, or are likely to encounter in the future.
That's it! You've identified challenges that you're experiencing from our list.
If you've got other issues you'd like to let us know about please describe them below.
And when you're done click the down arrow to answer just a handful more questions to complete the diagnosis.
Which of the following tools and techniques are you using to engage young people today?
Your diagnosis shows your current youth engagement approach, your capacity for change and innovation, and the relative importance of a set of key tools and capabilities for better engaging with young people that are matched to your challenges.
Some of these concepts might be new to you, or you might know them by another name. Either way, we've included information and case studies to illustrate each of these tools and capabilities that you can access from the diagnosis or from the supplementary module that follows it.
To help you better understand your diagnosis, we've included a guide option that will take you through each part of the diagnosis. You can start this by clicking the GUIDE ME button, and move through each section by clicking on the series of NEXT buttons. Alternatively you can click on any part of the diagnosis to zoom in and read the explanatory commentary.
Organisations are already achieving amazing outcomes by embracing these new tools and capabilities for working with young people. We've added some case studies here to inspire you to think about how your organisation might re-imagine how you engage with young people. We'll be adding more case studies to this list shortly so please stay tuned!
Right now we're collecting data so that we can add benchmarking information to this tool. If you're ok for your responses to be included please fill out the short form below and hit send.
