Over 150 young, emerging leaders will gather in Accra for a three-day residential Ghana Youth Camp from November 13 to 15, 2020.
The Camp is an experiential learning program designed for Ghanaian youth with the aim of highlighting and encouraging cross-cultural exchange, self-exploration, leadership development, friendship, collaboration, and youth empowerment. The event is organized under the auspices of the Ghana chapter of the Global Youth Network (GYN), an international youth-led non-governmental organization that works to motivate, unify, and empower young people.
With a mission to mobilize and inspire the youth to be drivers of social, political, and economic transformation, the organization spearheads such projects for youth development and capacity-building. Under the theme “Creating community, inspiring today’s leaders for Ghana’s sustainable development,” it features thought leaders and seasoned facilitators from diverse backgrounds. Rooted in belief in the youth as problem-solvers, change-makers, and leaders, the events and its related activities are catalysts for change and are guided by all the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The event will bring together youth leaders for holistic self-development, and will provide leadership and entrepreneurial training sessions through lectures, seminars, workshops, and team-building activities related to the SDGs. Given Ghana’s high unemployment rate, the initiative seeks to empower the youth with relevant training and entrepreneurial skills that will make them self-sufficient. Participants will also benefit from a rich network of change-makers from across the country.
Registration to participate in the event is open and ends on October 30, 2020. Youth leaders, students, entrepreneurs, social change agents, and activists are encouraged to apply via www.globalyouthnet.org/ghana-youth-camp.
