Young men and women have increasingly taken leadership roles in local institutions in recent years, yet they rarely receive adequate training or support. As a result, under many variables, many young men and women tend to act more as observers rather than partners, hardly struggling to expand; or leave their positions after a short period without making a difference.
Lack of training and support is attributed to that success in these roles requires experience as a priority, hence reducing the number and diverse voices of young people and women who can have-a- say. This inspirational and experiential program is designed specifically to help young people and women in the target communities gain/improve the skills they need to effectively perform their roles in their communities. This program aims to prepare young men and women in local communities for leadership roles and to create partnerships between young men and women and adults. It also aims to make the voices of young people and women heard.
To develop the leadership capacities of the young men and women activists in the targeted communities, thus enabling them to play successful and effective leadership roles
This program is implemented in partnership with Friedrich Ebert Foundation.

Sixty participants will be selected for the next stage, i.e., the conference.
