Informing, educating and empowering youth to change the world.

IT’S TIME TO LISTEN TO US

Young People We Care (YPWC) has decided that in order to map our own course for the future, we needed to know about our clients as individual. At YPWC, young people speak about their hopes, their aspirations, their realities and what they expect the world to do for them.

We ask youth participants and other interested to make their voice to be heard by writing a declaration to the United Nations and other concerned international institutions. The declaration could be written in any format. Declarations are expected among other relevant details to highlight what it is like to be your age living in your community and also your hopes and dreams for the future.

Young People We Care (YPWC) will treat all youth participant declarations with due respect while the world listens to us.

  • Why is it important to achieve the MDGs?
  • Why is a particular Goal of the MDGs important to you?
  • For example is Goal 1 more important to you than Goal 8?
  • Hint: You can better answer this question if you localize the MDGs to your community. Think about some challenges that you are facing in your community and how the MDGs are the best opportunity to solve these challenges.
  • What do you think are some of the best ways or practices that the Government of your country, world leaders, politicians, donor agencies and international institutions or organizations can adopt and work with/on to achieve the MDGs?

Interested people should contact or submit their declarations with their name, age, address and school or organizations to which they are affiliated to: Young People We Care (YPWC) via email address: info@ypwc.org

YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROFILES

Young people all over the world are making a difference through action projects, advocacy and other means. At Young People We Care (YPWC) we believe that the success and the achievements of young people need to be highlighted. Through this we hope that others are going to be inspired to ‘be the change’ that they wish to see while world leaders recognize that the youth of today are the largest untapped resources for development and peace.

YPWC’S VOLUNTEER ABROAD OPPORTUNITIES

Volunteering is widely regarded as the ideal way to encourage active community integration. It gives a person the chance to build their confidence and self respect which helps them to secure the university place of their choice or to enter the employment field with a good CV.

“I’d love to see more young people taking action to help the poor and disadvantaged”– Bill Gates, Newsweek Web

All over the world many people including young people are currently volunteering and partnering with Governments, organizations and communities to take a lead in the change that they wish to see in their communities and the world at large. Volunteering for solidarity is key to the realization of the Millennium Development Goals .Volunteerism provides an opportunity for people to meet, share ideas and have fun without dwelling on divisive issues such as race and colour. This has created cross-boundary opportunities and allowed for the sharing of ideas and best practises for development. YPWC would like to invite you to be part of our international volunteer team that work with us.

Organising an overseas volunteer programme is a difficult and time-consuming task – especially when you are trying to do it during a busy year of College. YPWC offers an unrivalled package to take away all the hassle of this process, leaving prospective volunteers/interns free to concentrate on what they should be doing – learning and preparing towards enjoying their placement. YPWC makes sure that our volunteers are provided with comprehensive information in living in Ghana. We try to make your volunteer experience in Ghana a period of excitement whilst you try to make an impact on the life of people and communities.

The volunteer/internship programme will in addition to other relevant details build intern’s or volunteers capacity in the following areas: Leadership skills, proposal and report writing, training and facilitation skills. Interns/Volunteers will also be exposed to research on Migration and Development, Millenniun Development Goals and HIV/AIDs.
