Global Youth Dialogue on “Sexual exploitation of Children and Youth”


Together is how we are going to raise our voice, fight our way, and explore our possibilities in eliminating the threat of children and youth violence concerning sexual exploitation and abuse. Our children should never be told that their silence is the answer to heal from abuse and degradation, be it in their house, their school environment, or even through social groups and individuals. Providing the right kind of support to break the negatives and stand up mentally and physically is vital for all children, but that shouldn’t be done behind the doors. Over the years the campaigns and educational programs of many organizations around the world have yet to reach its achievement day by day.

Let us talk, let us share, and let us be the voice of the thousands of voices that aren’t being given the chance to be heard. Their future is in our hands, we can drop it or work for it, you decide!

CAREER DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS


Mainstreaming Youth Empowerment Incubation for Inclusive and Sustainable Youth Development Time

Summary of the Workshop Content

The aim of this workshop is to provide a comprehensive introduction to the ideology of Youth Empowerment Incubation (YEI) as a novel approach to promoting inclusive and sustainable youth development. YEI aims to streamline the youth empowerment system of a region, by facilitating parallel focus on top level and bottom level youth development. It is an alternative developmental approach to the Bottom to Top Method of Sustainable Development. Such a parallel empowerment of the youth is conducted through two main avenues. The first is by promoting youth participation in apex level processes relating to youth development such as youth policy formulation and youth infrastructure development. The second avenue is fostering sustainable partnerships amongst the stakeholders of the youth empowerment system of a country or a region, in line with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Number 17. The ideology of YEI is promoted through Youth Empowerment Incubators which act as catalysts for inclusive and sustainable youth development.

Structure of the Workshop

  • 10 minutes – Introduction to the Present Realities of Youth Development
  • 10 minutes – Breakout Sessions and Group Activity on Critically Examining the Present Approaches to Youth Development
  • 15 minutes – Presentation by the Groups
  • 10 minutes – Comprehensive Introduction to Youth Empowerment Incubation
  • 15 minutes – Discussion on the Macro and Micro Adoption of YEI

Additional Tools Needed

a) PowerPoint Presentation (PPTX) – A PPTX will be used by the Speaker to summarize her main speaking points and to present it to the audience. Hence the Organizers will have to make the necessary allowances for the speaker to present her findings via PowerPoint.
b) Breakout Sessions on the Online Platform Used – The Speaker will break out the attendees into 3 to 5 groups based on the number of participants, for the purpose of conducting the Group Activity. Hence the online platform used must facilitate breakout sessions.
