Phoenix Youth Leadership Programme

iMEDIATE ran an exciting training programme on Youth Leadership course called 'Our Future in Our Hands' with and for young people of Phoenix Community Centre. Twenty four young people – aged 16 to 33 years participated in the course giving up their school vacation, others took leave from work or a break from studies in order to gain more leadership skills and knowledge. The majority of the group were already involved in a youth organization, a religious organization, non-profit organization or cultural group.Seven of the participants said they were already playing a leadership role in the community, eight were certain they could become leaders and seven thought they probably had what it takes to become leaders.The course covered:

  • Understanding identity

  • Overcoming discrimination
  • Protecting all our rights
  • Securing our future.
