March 1, 2020 Research and Evidence They need to see the people they are affecting by their decision-making Research ReportsBy Silvie Bovarnick, Claire Cody Download The Our Voices programme seeks to build capacity and knowledge about the ethical involvement of children and young people in participatory work addressing sexual violence at an international level. The project aimed to build the capacity of the three partner organisations to safely involve young people with experience of sexual violence in participatory advocacy on this issue. To this end, the IC supported the partners to deliver a 12-week participatory advocacy training programme with a small group of young people who were current or former users of their services. The purpose of the training programme was to equip participants with skills and knowledge to become youth advocates; to enable them to identify a problem in relation to sexual violence affecting children and young people in their country and develop advocacy activities to address this problem in their local contexts. This report provides the key findings from the summary and an outline of the methodology employed.
