Adolescents need tailored support to develop the aspirations and skills they need to become the ‘generation capable of creativity and innovation with high productivity’ envisioned by Jordan’s new National Youth Strategy. GAGE research findings suggest that adolescents in Jordan, especially Syrian refugees, remain vulnerable to exploitative child labour and rarely benefit from programming for economic empowerment.
