This research addresses the theoretical and policy gaps on the nexus between economic opportunities, youth inclusion and violence prevention through an in-depth and critical research study of the National Youth Service (NYS) Community Cohorts Programme, which aimed at reaching thousands of youth in poor urban areas by offering them jobs to improve their neighborhoods and provide them with a new sense of purpose in their life. The methodology document outlines how using the NYS Community Cohorts Programme as a case study, fresh and new data will be provided on the impact of youth programs that seek to improve livelihoods through economic opportunities, as well as the challenges of violence and exclusion at local levels.
