Subject 2 Citizen Youth Summit

Harare, Zimbabwe - University of Zimbabwe

Africa Alliance of YMCAs’ (AAYMCA) will be gathering participants from its Subject to Citizen (S2C) initiative for a youth summit June 2012.  The S2C initiative is based on the concept that young people are subject to the will of others in that they are often excluded and manipulated politically, economically and socially. The result is that many youth are at risk, idle, lack hope and confidence and are thus open to exploitation, often turning to violence as a result. S2C moves youth to a state of citizenship where they understand the root causes of problems, articulate viewpoints and are part of positive change at various levels of decision-making.

The programme consists of:

Participants will be S2C Ambassadors from Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, the Gambia, Togo and Zambia.
