Youth Education Initiative (YEI)

Goal: 
Support and empower youth voice and youth involvement
Reasons for Implementation
  • Inspired by similar youth-led efforts across country

  • Appreciate adult work but need for youth involvement

  • Youth require further opportunities then given at school
  • Youth not taken seriously without proper organization
  • Adults often shy away from youth interaction without connections
