They gain exposure to professionals, businesses, agencies and civic leaders. Our Center is opened to Youths from 17 to 29 years.
Young people are critical thinkers, change makers, innovators, communicators and leaders, they are able to advance the sustainable development goals to improve their lives and those of their communities.
The Youth Centre at Mariacutty organises health workshops to provide young people with valid information on ways to promote personal well being, share tips on hygiene and provide best practices on ways to reduce ambient pollution and inspire change in general health care practices.
We have gender based programs aimed at teaching young women a variety of skills associated with self control, positive body image, self worth human growth and development. These programs will be anchored by older women who will be available to counsel these young women on career issues, living a purposeful life and female health issues.
Youth need access to job opportunities, decent working conditions and financial services to manage income, accumulate assets and make investment to increase productivity and reduce unemployment. The Youth Centre at Mariacutty offers work preparation seminars, mentorship and volunteer programs.
The Centre is committed to reducing gender based inequality among young people by providing young people both male and female with equal access to education, health tips, decent work opportunities and representation in political and economic decision making processes. We believe these will fuel sustainable economic growth and benefit our society
Through our partnerships we will be involved in conservation projects aimed at making the human settlement inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.
