This assessment of the civic participation of Peruvian youth addresses USAID’s concern regarding the presence and contribution of youth to its ongoing development activities. The assessment identifies the issues that most interest youth, the means of communication they use, and the opportunities they have to become involved, benefit from, and participate in USAID/Peru’s activities. The assessment provides recommendations for the Agency and implementing partner organizations to make youth presence and participation in their components more visible. The assessment used secondary information produced from 2018 to 2021 and primary information from key informants. Results show that youth in the country continue to comprise a demographic dividend that benefits development. The results of this assessment will be used to update the USAID/Peru development strategy.
