The Youth Toolbox acts as a repository of knowledge, experiences, and good practices, with the aim of providing policymakers with a comprehensive resource facility for developing inclusive and responsive youth policies in a process that optimizes engagement of youth-led organizations. It strives to engage the participation of a range of stakeholders, increasing the amount and diversity of knowledge and views. The Youth Policy Toolbox also aims to be interactive through the inclusion of training modules, opinion polls, and message postings. Each of these levels are specifically tailored to the needs of policymakers and youth, so that relevant content for both parties is available. The Toolbox also provides a contact database of all relevant United Nations bodies/agencies, government ministries, and youth organizations, providing users with a practical means of finding more information and becoming further involved. Through these means, it is hoped that knowledge is being enhanced and learning and sharing of experiences takes place.
