Strategic research into the youth education pack (YEP) model

In 2014, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) engaged the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) to conduct an external review of the NRC Youth Education Pack (YEP) model that has been implemented in multiple post-crisis and fragile-state contexts since 2003. This review notes, due mostly to lack of data, WRC was unable to definitively answer the questions of whether the YEP model can be made less expensive and reach greater scale without reducing its overall effectiveness. However the study should be valuable to NRC as a piece of formative research, providing a pathway through which the research questions could be answered, namely through continued experimentation with lower-cost programme models; investments in rigorous impact evaluation of these adapted programme models; and a greater effort to standardise accounting and understand the costs of the various individual components of YEP.
