Youth-led actions for more resilient schools and communities: Mapping of School Safety approaches and Youth in School Safety training for youth facilitators

National Societies have been implementing a wide range of school-based, youth-led actions geared toward disaster risk reduction, first aid, hygiene and health promotion, water and sanitation, road safety, and youth empowerment.  With guidance from IFRC, the RCRC Southeast Asia Youth Network (SEAYN) took the lead in piloting the Youth in School Safety program, which trained more than 150 youth volunteers in six countries over an 18-month period.  The program has resulted in youth volunteers conducting countless school safety actions and has captured various approaches to School Safety mapping in all 11 countries in Southeast Asia.
