Young Advocates for Change

Enabling Youth to Advocate for Positive Changes in their Communities

Young Advocates for Change mobilises youth at community level to come together in creative and inclusive spaces. They work to develop confidence and skills to create innovations that are youth-led and to work with the community to advocate for positive change in their environments.

 

The programme offers personal development and life-changing experience to the participants as well as supporting African communities to make positive changes for young people. It is based on the African Alliance of YMCA’s philosophy of Subject 2 Citizen (S2C). The S2C initiative is designed to unlock the potential of young people and equip them with the skills and confidence to transform themselves and other young people.

 

The program gives youth the opportunity to use their leadership skills to engage in advocacy work at community level. This way arenas for young people are created to freely discuss issues that affects them and to feel empowered.
