Technical Note on Life Skills Programmes for Empowering Adolescent Girls
Notes for practitioners on what works
This technical note on Life Skills Programmes for Empowering Adolescent Girls aims to provide practical considerations for country offices implementing and supporting life skills programmes or programmes that integrate life skills, particularly when focused as a strategy within child marriage prevention and girls’ empowerment programmes. It is based on the Rapid Review of Life Skills Programmes and Curricula to determine characteristics of design (target group, the skills and outcomes sought), implementation (platforms, methods, resourcing and time) and grounding in community and services that promote girls’ empowerment.
