|Samenvatting||Youth Peer Education Network (Y-PEER), is a grouping of more than 500 non-profit organisations and governmental institutions with a membership of over 7,000 young people from 39 countries. This groundbreaking and comprehensive youth initiative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is involved in adolescent sexual and reproductive health (ASRH). The network covers Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East, North and East Africa, and most recently, Brazil. Y-PEER supports young people to become active peer educators, trainers of trainers and youth advocates for adolescent sexual and reproductive health. Its core concept is meaningful participation of young people in the governance, management, coordination, strategic planning, implementation and evaluation of the network’s activities. Internal communication tools and appropriate outreach and education materials are key to realizing Y-PEER’s objectives. To reach out to 39 countries, Y-PEER had to create its own internal communication systems to be able to get its voices heard nationally. Some of the lessons learned are that he requirement of English language skills is a barrier for many skilled and experienced peer educators and very few Y-PEER resources target groups such as Injecting Drug Users (IDUs), men who have sex with men (MSM) and, sex workers.|
