Mission and objectives
UNICEF's Adolescent Development and Participation (ADAP) section supports the UNICEF organizational priority of supporting adolescents across development and humanitarian contexts. Adolescence is a significant stage of life, marking the transition from childhood to adulthood, which offers a critical second window of opportunity for investments in children to promote positive outcomes. During this period, positive environments and relationships can enhance developmental outcomes, while the impact of negative experiences can be intensified and have long-lasting influence into adult life. UNICEF is committed to ensuring that adolescents can meet their full developmental potential, contribute positively to their societies, and safely and healthily transition to adulthood.
The protocol is being piloted by a number of countries in the LAC region who have requested it in Spanish to be able to field test it with young people.
UNICEF is developing a Protocol - the Protocol to Increase Safe and Meaningful Participation of Young People, Focusing on Mental Health and Psychosocial Well-Being - to improve the capacity of organizations and individuals to better safeguard young people’s mental wellbeing in participation processes. The resource will consist of steps that should be undertaken during participatory work with young people, to minimize risks, put in place/support safeguards, and maximize the benefits of participation for young people in terms of their mental health and psychosocial wellbeing. This assignment is to translate the protocol into Spanish for pilot testing in Latin America. The priority is to translate the first 47 pages; then the first 5 Annexes.
