Need: Materials/Curriculum on Life Skills for Youth

Currently looking for life skills curriculum that has been successfully used with youth to develop personal and professional skills.

I am in the process of developing a cultural empowerment program for African Diaspora Youth in the United States. This program will encourage youth to develop innovative strategies to raise awareness and address issues from their country of origin by capitalizing on the resources available to them in America.

If you have worked with this population or know some youth friendly materials/resources that focus on empowerment, or if you have some ideas of potential activities please contact me by clicking on the link to my profile. Thank you!!

Connection

Hello SAsong,

I just started an organization, the Gay African Youth Networking Center (GAYN-Center) to provide a safe and supportive online space to queer youth living in West Africa. One of our programs is to link up West African youth with peers around the world. Although your work is not with queer youth, I think it will be wonderful if our two initiatives could work together.
Let me know your thoughts.

With regards,

Mariam

Yes! Please lets!

Thanks so much Mariam! Kudos on tackling something that would be/is considered "taboo" in a number of African nations. I am curious and would like to learn more about this initiative...how receptive was the idea? What were some of the challenges with conducting it online vs in-person aside from the obvious expanded reach? I am impressed with the number of programs tackling very important topics.

Please keep me posted on how "Come out lets build" went.

Hugz!!!
