Would you recommend Youth Alliance for Leadership and Development in Africa (YALDA)?

by Mary K. from MW (August 2, 2020)
Because I believe in youth potential, as youth are brought into community organizations and civic roles that they have traditionally been excluded from, they can participate in local decision-making at multiple levels. This collaboration leads to skill enhancement, confidence building, and ownership that prepare them as they navigate toward adulthood. Furthermore,Through youth engagement, communities can do a better job of creating the services, opportunities, and supports that young people need to develop in healthy ways.From a pyouth engagement is important because young people deserve the right to represent their own interests.
