National Movements this year engaged in Africa We Want training, using a civic competence manual prepared for the Subject 2 Citizen programme. Of particular note was that the S2C Ambassadors in the National Movements were brought on board as trainers. Based on feedback, the manual is currently under revision – and will be translated into French in January 2016.
While the numbers of those trained will only be available in 2016, we would like to highlight that the Ethiopia YMCA had trained 661 youth by the monitoring visit in October. A great achievement! We proved that we can, though this project, both equip our youth with knowledge and skills to engage in community action to effect positive change, and at the same time, tap into new youth markets with an attractive YMCA offering: training, the opportunity to get involved and support to do so. A more robust approach to this will be taken in 2016.
