The rising influence of youth politics across the globe, underscores the need to create meaningful opportunities for the youth to participate in the political process.
Progressive Youth, the official youth arm of the United Progressive Party (UPP), will celebrate Youth Month throughout August, with a program of activities that focus on youth education, engagement and empowerment.
Youth Month will create user-friendly pathways for the youth to contribute their ideas and participate in discussions about the best solutions that will improve their future development.
This initiative will illuminate the exceptional talents, abilities, expertise and vision of the youth through the Platform for Education, Advocacy and Community Enhancement (PEACE).
Using this comprehensive approach the Progressive Youth will help build skills, knowledge and confidence among the youth to express their voices and take actions that affect the changes that they seek. The PEACE Program is based on five tenets:
- Platform to express needs and concerns
- Education about the principles of our democracy
- Advocacy for those who are marginalized
- Community engagement based on a shared purpose and common goals
- Enhancement by ensuring that the interests of youth are prioritised
“We are a generation with a hunger for something different than the status quo. The youth fully understand the issues and challenges in our society, because we live them every day. We must create a meaningful platform from which our voices can be heard and there are real opportunities for us to make a difference,” said Johnathan Wehner, President of Progressive Youth.
Among the youth activities planned throughout the month of August is the commemoration of International Youth Day on Friday 12th August.
A Youth Symposium and a sound clash edition of De Right Riddim Show, are some of the main activities that the public can look forward to.
