The world today is witnessing the largest number of young people alive at a particular time. Some 1.8 billion people are between ages 10 and 24. Most of them live in developing countries including Ghana, often comprising a huge proportion of the population. How well they navigate adolescence will determine not only the course of their own lives, but that of the world. Yet, too many youths are unable to participate fully in society. They are often excluded by decision makers even when the decisions are about them.
