Out-of-School Youth Engagement Rapid Assessment

The OSY Engagement Rapid Assessment, a collaborative effort between USAID, EDC, and Accenture Development Partnerships under the O2 program, delves into the factors influencing out-of-school youth (OSY) enrollments in Alternative Learning System (ALS) and Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) programs. Conducted from May 2023 to June 2023, the assessment aimed to understand barriers and enabling factors that impact OSY enrollments, especially considering that less than one-fourth of OSY were enrolled in these programs as of 2020. The report explores various aspects, including the reasons behind non-completion of programs after enrollment and identifies potential improvement initiatives. It serves as a valuable resource for policymakers, educators, and stakeholders seeking to enhance educational opportunities for OSY and address challenges within the system.
