Description: The goal of YouThink activity is to increase youths’ resilience to disinformation campaigns and political manipulation by enhancing their media literacy and critical thinking skills. Youth often drive the most important social movements of an era. This activity is part of a larger portfolio aiming to build the resilience and self-reliance of youth; the development hypothesis for this portfolio is that IF economic opportunities for youth are strengthened, public initiatives for youth engagement increase, and youth model Western values — including media literacy and critical thinking, THEN progress toward youth self-reliance and resilience to malign influence will be energized and accelerated.
