Forging Youth-Adult Partnership on the Board

Tool

Developed by the USAID-funded Leadership, Management, and Governance (LMG) Project for use by the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) Africa Region, this guide is intended to help build the capacity of volunteers as they are elected to serve on governing bodies at any level and individuals with an impressive track record in a particular area of work who may not have the competencies needed for governing an organization.

In conjunction with the IPPF Code of Good Governance and IPPF Handbook of Good Governance, this guide provides practical governance guidance and tips for effective inter-generational communication and governance.

A shorter technical highlight, Youth-Adult Partnership on International Planned Parenthood Member Association Boards, shares a general overview of potential challenges that multi-generational governing bodies face and the LMG Project’s activities to support governance of IPPF Africa Region member associations.
