Skills4girls Partner Toolkit
Unlocking The Potential of Adolescent Girls
About the Toolkit
This toolkit has been developed to support adolescent girls’ skills building and position UNICEF as a partner of choice for private and public sector partners. The toolkit will be used by UNICEF National Committees, PFP, PPD, Regional and Country Offices as a framework to communicate shared values and advocate for partnerships and funding for the Skills4Girls Portfolio.
Objectives of the toolkit
The overall objective is to make the case for transforming the lives of adolescent girls through skills building. Specific objectives include:
- Generate strategic, successful and sustainable partnerships for UNICEF’s Skills4Girls Portfolio. Highlight the value proposition of investing in building skills for adolescent girls.
- Make a case for and demonstrate UNICEF’s credibility and capacity as a partner of choice. Positively influence partners to join UNICEF in transforming the lives of adolescent girls especially the vulnerable, across the world.
The Potential of Adolescent Girls
Today’s adolescent girls are the face of courage, strength and resilience – the powerful change-makers driving progress in their families, schools and communities.
Equipped with the right resources and opportunities, the world’s 600 million adolescent girls can become the largest generation of female leaders the world has ever seen. Employment in the 21st century workforce is projected to focus on science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and social entrepreneurship.
Globally, about 1 billion girls and women lack the skills they need to succeed in rapidly changing job markets while 1 in 4 girls aged 15–19 years is neither employed nor in education or training compared to 1 in 10 boys of the same age.
