THE SCHOOL OF WORK AND LIFE FOR YOUTHS

000_0044Success requires a deep understanding of the dynamics that come work and life. And this ultimately cannot be learnt in a class room. We are authors of our own destiny as 85% of our success relies on us and our ability to respond rather than react to each situation in life

The increase in youth dependency in Africa most especially in Cameroon is a true reflection of the challenges youths encounter in building their own future or destiny. Is this because there are no job opportunities, they lack the skills or are comfortable with this status? Our answers to these questions and many more gives us a clear reason for youth unemployment in Africa. Although thousands get degrees every passing year, only few get employed (personally or by institutions).  It is clearly evident that our educational system is lacking as there are no element to facilitate that smooth transition from school to the work place.  It is also important to note that the school of work and life cannot be taught in the classroom.

It is thus on this grounds that we seek to create a platform for youths to learn and acquire skills to face the dynamics that come with work and life to effectively meet their true essence of life which is growth.

As one of the main goals of Rural Women Development center to empower and enhance youth’s capacity, RUWDEC organized a 3 days seminar on The School of Work and Life for Youths with theme Life is a Game Learn to Win in your Youth bringing together 16   youths from ages 15 and above. This seminar sort to strengthen youth’s capacity, widen their scope of knowledge and enhance youth employment through the enforcement of non-formal education which facilitate smooth transition from school to the work place.
