This toolbox helps organizations and organizers to plan, implement and communicate the positive changes that they aim to create with their initiative or organisation in the lives of young people. It has been designed to help to  do, measure, improve their activities… and repeat! In other words – to be able to create a more positive impact. Besides providing more clarity and increasing efficiency, it will help to involve the core project/activity team and explain the work outside the organisation, too. In conclusion, the toolbox help in creating a lasting legacy.


What? A combination of nine tools especially developed for planning, measuring and increasing positive impacts of the organisations and reducing any negative effects of their activities.
For whom? For you. If you are active in an organisation that works with and for the young people. For example, youth associations aiming to develop their members or social enterprises providing services to youngsters.
What if I don’t work with young people? The tools will be absolutely suitable for designing and measuring the impact of your activities too! However, all the examples in this toolbox are related to young people as they are the main target
group here.


With the help of this toolbox, you can be even more successful in your activities! If you are reading this, you are probably active in an organisation that aims to create a positive impact in the lives of young people. Perhaps you want to unleash the creative potential of youngsters… or help young people who have had lesser opportunities compared with their peers…. or provide valuable knowledge and skills to the members of a youth organisation.
