Review of the Youth Worker Training Sub Program in Colombia (CO0247)

Jun 2006
This report constitutes a review of the Youth Worker Training subprogram named "Jóvenes en Acción" which was a component of the Social Safety Net Program (CO0247). This document presents information about the entire program but the emphasis is given to "Jóvenes en Acción". The objective is to provide information about the subprogram: the context under which it was developed, the basic design features (inputs, outputs, outcomes) and the underlying model, the evaluability (at design and during the execution of the program), the execution efficiency and the main results. Although the central purpose of doing an impact evaluation of the effects of training on employability was not possible due to data limitations, this review was informative for the thematic evaluation.
