GAYA Peer to Peer Learning Approach
The Gender and Youth Activity (GAYA) facilitates spaces for implementing partners (IPs) to share learning, discuss challenges, and collectively problem-solve around gender and youth integration.
The Gender and Youth Activity (GAYA) facilitates spaces for implementing partners (IPs) to share lessons learned, discuss challenges, and collectively problem-solve around gender and youth integration. Through GAYA’s peer-to-peer learning efforts, implementers with similar roles across programs come together to share experiences and resources. GAYA cultivates an environment of knowledge sharing to amplify implementers’ experiences to a broader audience and create linkages to promote effective collaboration.
GAYAs peer-to-peer learning efforts includes:
- The Gender, Youth, Food Security, and Resilience Fellowship, a 3-month fellowship designed to deliver targeted technical capacity-strengthening opportunities while fostering and strengthening peer networks of practitioners.
- GAYA’s Small Grants Program, which addresses key issues within the collection, analysis, and use of data on gender and youth. This program leverages the expertise of implementers to create innovative solutions and share lessons learned with the broader community.
- Driving dialogue around community priorities to promote good practices and behavior change. GAYA hosts participatory knowledge-sharing events that serve both as a platform for peer-to-peer learning, as well as capacity-strengthening opportunities.
- Engaging with existing communities of practice to collaborate across activities, disseminate resources, and amplify existing knowledge.
- Collaborating with other awards within the FSN Network to amplify relevant content and lessons learned.
