Empowering Children and Adolescents

Empowering Children and Adolescents

This is achieved through a three year skills training and mentorship programme in which carefully selected teenage opinion leaders are equipped and supported as Peer Educators. Peer Educators become role models who use the power of peer pressure as a structured and positive force for personal, group and community change.

These school leavers or out-of-school adolescent youth leaders are not only provided with a lifetime toolkit of skills, leadership development and a connection to future opportunities, but are given specific roles and responsibilities to bring about a sustained revolution of hope and positive social norms among their generation. This is a ‘by youth for youth’ person-by-person approach.
