Young people targeted for leadership training

learn leadOver 40 young people between the ages of 13-24 are currently participating in a programme geared at equipping them with leadership and other other necessary  skills which will help them as young people, to start positive change in their communities.

All We Need Is Love Project is a three-year programme which directly correlates to ChildFund’s Theory of Change for the youth which is based on the hypothesis that if the youth learn to love themselves, are employed, making positive choices and engaged in promoting positive social change in their communities, there will be more skilled and resilient youth thriving in safer and more productive societies.

Additionally, the programme seeks to rectify some of the ills of the society which include violence, abuse, poor sexual reproductive health, and drug use.

Youth Ambassadors will receive training, as part of the programme, on how to facilitate activities designed for youth exploration of self and development. Furthermore, they will be supported by Dominica Children’s Federation staff and technical professionals from various social sectors to create youth friendly spaces in their communities and to facilitate activities in the following four progressive stages: love for self, love for others, love for community, and youth-led change.

The training will run from April 2 to April 5 at the Holy Redeemer Retreat House.

All We Need is Love Project is an initiative of the Child Fund Caribbean with support from the Pan-American Development Foundation in partnership with the East & West Dominica Children’s Federation.

    Dominican youth need to find hope in the economic future of the country.The lack of investment in the productive sector, will leave them in a worst economic condition than their grand parents. they will never be able to provide for themselves and their families.
