The YICS Program is centered around achieving the following objectives:
- Skill Empowerment: To provide participating youth with a diverse range of skills that enhance their personal and professional development, enabling them to succeed in any career path they choose.
- Community Support: To encourage and enable youth to become active participants in their communities, promoting positive change and lasting improvements.
- Civic Engagement: To cultivate a sense of civic responsibility and democratic participation among youth, empowering them to contribute meaningfully to society.
The YICS Program consists of outreach and recruitment, intensive training workshops, project implementation, and a concluding symposium and reflection phase.
Participants will gain valuable skills, experiences, and knowledge from the training sessions, which cover leadership, problem-solving, civic engagement, volunteerism, and career exploration. They will apply these skills in real-world scenarios by creating volunteer projects addressing community issues.
