Empowering Young Adults
GOLD provides a long-term and structured skills training and mentoring programme for these young adults to become influential community leaders, youth work practitioners and experts in peer education practice. Not only do they get to develop critical soft and hard skills for their future employment, but they are the key agents responsible for delivering the training and mentoring of school-going age GOLD Youth Peer Educators on the ground in priority communities.
Many of these young adults, despite being passionate about making a difference, were previously unemployable or unemployed. By being developed as a GOLD Facilitator they gain excellent work experience and in the process of being skilled they are given the opportunity to empower those younger than them in the same way.
