Youth Leadership Building Activities
A series of training activities in alternative and trans-formative leadership have been developed and are being implemented to raise the level of gender consciousness among the young people in schools and universities to manage the consequences of conflict more efficiently; define their identity as individuals and as youth; monitor the development programs in their areas; participate in the decision making processes; analyze their local government resource distribution and prepare themselves for leadership roles in their communities.
Youth Information Desk
Under the youth information desk, YEC helps young people including university students to bridge the gap between the world of education and the world of work. Through a wide range of services, YEC provides young people with skills in CV writing, application writing, available job opportunities, career guidance and experience to help them to engage into sustainable employment at local, National and international work placements. The organization also has a wide range of projects regarding youth employment like web and graphic designing, flyer designing and social media training among others.
Virtual learning Hub (VLH)
Access to information is a powerful tool for influencing change; however the small numbers of women accessing information renders the attainment of gender equality and pro poor policies difficult. The VLH empowers youth and women by enabling them to access ICTs and use them to promote democratic values so as to attain gender equality and social justice. Through this innovation of the, YEC becomes a vehicle for women and youth leader’s participation and capacity building in leadership using ICTs. The hub also provides space for women and young leaders to freely engage in debates that enhance their leadership, entrepreneurial and ICT skills.
