Overview: The mission of the Jacobs Foundation is to foster children and youth development. Inspired by the willingness of our partners to take up the challenge of project level evaluation, we have developed these guidelines: Monitoring and Evaluating Life Skills for Youth Development. The first volume of these guidelines aims to provide a better understanding of what we mean by life skills and why we think they are of such importance for children and youth development, as well as a hands-on practical guideline for our operational partners about how to monitor and evaluate the development and acquisition of life skills.
