Rwanga Youth Forum
Rwanga Youth Forum
Rwanga Youth Forum is a platform for youth to engage in dialogue with various decision makers to explore possible solutions for creating an economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable future. It is to give a stage to the unheard voices of the youth. We try to reduce the gap and establish a bridge between the youth and decision makers and get youth involved in decision making process. Each year, they discuss an issue and a challenge affecting the life of youth. In the same time, they recommend and propose solutions for those issues and challenges. This year's theme of the forum is the shortage of job opportunities and how to address this issue.
The eligibility criteria and selection process of the participants:
The 30 participants who attend Rwanga Youth Forum must be between the ages of 18 and 35 and have a deep interest in advocacy and social works related to youth issues. They need to have the minimum educational background of bachelor's or diploma degree. A minimum of one year of experience is mandatory in the humanitarian sector, especially youths' rights, empowerment, and social activities. Demonstrate the skills of leadership, communication skills, and problem-solving. Dedicated individuals must have a solid passion for solving the problem and coming up with initiatives for a better community. The candidates must commit to one full-day event and participate actively in the panels and roundtable discussions to share ideas and exchange thoughts to outline the best practical solutions to the unemployment challenges.
The selection process consists of four significant steps: the call for application, shortlisting the applicants, inviting the 30 selected participants, and an online meeting with all of them after the invitation to explain the details and inform them for the day of the forum.
