Why Join and Work With Us?

  • Our local programs respond to the needs of the local communities and build services with a combination of support from private corporate organizations, national and local experts as well as regional and global partners.
  • All of our volunteers are interviewed, thoroughly trained, and screened. It is noteworthy that every local program was started by a core group of volunteers.
  • We recognize that there are few developmentally appropriate services to serve young people especially after they attain 18 to 25years of age hence we commit to work through with the youth until they can be integrated well in the labour market while doing life changing exploits that have meaningful impact in the society.
  • We celebrate diversity, embracing all youth regardless of race, ethnicity, ancestry, skin color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, relationship status, personal appearance, family roles, political affiliation, or disability.
