On 16, 17 and 18 December last year, the adolescents and young people of the Youth Advisory Board (Yab) met in Milan for the third time to discuss the implementation of the Child Guarantee, an initiative by the European Commission aimed at promoting equal opportunities and guaranteeing access to essential services for children at risk of poverty or social exclusion, and of the National Action Plan for the Childhood Guarantee (Pangi), approved on 29 March last year by the National Observatory for childhood and adolescence.

The Youth Advisory Board is a diverse group of about twenty adolescents and young people whose task is to bring the voices of the girls and boys living in Italy together and take part in the planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of the actions provided for by the Child Guarantee.

The group was set up by UNICEF as part of the pilot phase of the Child Guarantee funded by the European Commission in cooperation with the Ministry of Labour and Social Policies and the Department for Family Policies of the Italian Prime Minister's Office, and with the technical support of the Istituto degli Innocenti.
