Part-time Youth Consultants


Using Youth-Powered Design to Reduce Unintended Pregnancy Among Youth in Vietnam

Background and Purpose

Vietnam currently has the largest generation of youth in the country’s history. There are approximately 22 million young people aged 10 to 24, which is 25% of the total population.  This increase in youth is matched with a rapid change in sexual values, norms, and behaviors. Trends suggest that young, unmarried women are becoming sexually active at a younger age and at a higher rate than in previous generations, leading to an increase of unintended pregnancies, particularly in major urban areas.  It is estimated that over 10% of unmarried girls aged 15-24 have at least one unintended pregnancy. These pregnancies not only lead to abortions (both safe and unsafe), but also school drop-out, ostracism from families and the many effects of those outcomes that keep girls and their families in poverty.

The project “Using Youth-Powered Design to Reduce Unintended Pregnancy Among Youth in Vietnam” was set up to understand the behavioral drivers behind unwanted pregnancy amongst youth in Hanoi and design innovative interventions do address those behaviors. During prototyping phase, the project incorporated the youth perspectives by working with youth facilitators who led the research, actively gave feedback, and participated in developing and testing four concepts/prototypes. In next phase, PSI/V is looking for qualified (02) part-time Youth Consultants to scale up and roll out the following youth-led solutions: Community, Event, Contraception Box & Gurus.

Interested candidates should send applications to no later than March 20, 2021.
