Youth Empowerment Program

Fact-Sheet

We need volunteers and interns to join VIN’s Youth Empowerment Program to inspire and encourage Nepal’s youth.  Engage them in community development or give them vital social and professional skills; you will help to bring positive change to their lives and to that of their community by participating in youth volunteer program.

VIN launches Youth Club and Life Skills, English and Career Development, and Youth Entrepreneurship projects under Youth Empowerment program with an objective of developing skillful youth manpower in our community sites by the help of our local and international volunteers and encourage them to participate in socio-economic activities of the society.

The youth of Nepal face significant challenges as they emerge into adulthood.  Many leave school without their School Leaving Certificate (SLC); the national pass rate for 2013 being a miserable 41.57 percent, 6 percent lower than the previous year.  Pass or fail, politically and economically unstable Nepal holds few prospects.  Skilled and unskilled, many leave for foreign countries, casting a black shadow across the future of Nepal.

VIN’s overriding objective is the empowerment of marginalised communities, focusing on women and children.  We have been working with Jitpurphedi Village Development Committee (VDC) since 2007 and have begun to initiate work in Okhaldhunga district, in the Everest region.  We believe that youth empowerment of community is essential for the empowerment of the entire community.  They are the immediate future, full of potential to support community programs, such as Children’s Development and Women’s Empowerment and to develop themselves, given training and skills.

VIN seeks volunteers and interns to support on our youth volunteer programs and help to develop the social and professional skills of community youth, helping to build their confidence to deal with problematic situations and ensuring that they become active in the community, promoting change and empowerment.
