Search for Common Ground’s toolkit on ‘Mapping Youth Leaders for Peacebuilding’ to provide overarching guidance for integrating and implementing youth mapping activities into programs. The toolkit is a guidance note that requires the implementer to customize it to the specific needs of the project at hand.
For example, if you are doing a youth mapping focused on identifying potential common ground gang leaders, then the approach, the focus, and the resources (including the team you will use) must be customized to better suit the project at hand.
Youth mapping is a methodology used to identify youth leaders within their context and to understand:
- How youth are organized?
- How youth-led groups, both formal and informal, are structured?
- In what way these youth and youth-led groups influence their communities?
