District Youth Councils Benefit from Training

 


Representatives from the District Youth Councils nationwide have benefitted from two days training in Planning, Implementation, Monitoring & Evaluation and Project writing. The training was organized by the National Youth Commission in Kenema with support from UNDP.


The training is part of the Commission’s role to train and build the capacity of the District Youth Councils so they can coordinator and effectively manage youth issues in their various districts.
Commissioner Anthony Koroma in his statement said, through support from the World Bank and UNDP fourteen District Youth Councils have been established in all districts.

 

He continued that the process of building the capacity of these councils was left with the Commission. He stressed the fact that youth development was not the responsibility of just a single person. He added that if the youth sector was to succeed it should be apolitical. He encouraged the youth to take full advantage of development opportunities but must remain apolitical.


The vice chairperson of the National Youth Council Mamusu Hawa Turay said with the support from the National Youth Commission and its partners, the youth councils have been capacitated to run youth affairs in their various districts. She said if the councils have more support they can engage their communities and reach out to more young people.

 

Ms. Turay admonished her colleagues to be steadfast in their development drive and resist all urge to involve into politics.
Among the topics discussed in the training were; Project Planning Framework and Project Design, Monitoring and Evaluation guidelines, Organizational Capacity Assessment etc.
