YouthVoices is a new initiative putting those who are most affected at the center of the conversation about youth and the economy. Whether you are a young person, activist, entrepreneur, NGO, government leader, or researcher, YouthVoices wants to hear from you.Your stories will help reengineer the international community’s response to the jobs crisis.

Out of 1.8 billion young people on the planet, one-third are not currently in employment, education, or training. YouthVoices is a user-generated, multimedia storytelling platform that gives youth a powerful way to share their own struggles and successes related to education and work. Lend your voice to help combat global youth unemployment: http://ow.ly/XmxCY

Finding a solution to campus sexual assault requires understanding the problem. That's why RTI teamed up with the Bureau of Justice Statistics to develop a model that schools can use to conduct their own sexual assault surveys, and subsequently create campus-specific prevention and response programs. http://ow.ly/XNw8v
Two years ago, the White House established the Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault. Here's what's happened since then.

Lack of sanitary methods for waste disposal leads to public health problems, including diarrheal disease, which claims a child’s life every three to four minutes in India. To address these sanitation needs, RTI, in partnership with Duke University and Colorado State University, have developed a low-cost toilet that processes, disinfects, and recycles human waste. http://ow.ly/XDFWy
