Youth Advocacy and Communications (YAC)

This is our flagship program to respond to the SDG #5 Gender Equality and #10 Reduced Inequalities. The project offers an opportunity for young people to share their experiences, talking about the issues that affect them, while inspiring & motivating other youth in the community. We host a monthly Youth Radio Talk show dubbed “The CEED Young Achievers Talk Show” on 95.7 FM, as well as leverage the presence of young people on social media (Facebook, Tweeter, Instagram, Watsapp, etc) to reach out to them on various issues.

The emerging issues are then documented and shared widely with relevant stakeholders to inform them of our advocacy efforts on “working with” young people and not “working for” young people.

Objectives:

  • To provide a space for young people to share their skills, knowledge and ideas with fellow youth
  • To document and share success journeys of “Young Achievers” to inspire action by other young people
  • To promote entrepreneurial ventures and share opportunities with the radio listeners
  • To support social activism among youth and advocate for the needs of young people in Gulu
