Youth Empowerment

YouthRISE Nigeria empowerment Programmes are targeted toward promoting human rights, protection, and development of young key and vulnerable populations, particularly those in marginalized communities. To achieve this we reach our target beneficiaries through;

Community Mobilization
and Outreach

We engage with young people particularly those who use drugs and those living with HIVto increase awareness, build trust, and facilitate positive change. Our approach involves reaching out to individuals and groups within the community to promote understanding and encourage participation in activities that aim to improve the health and well-being of community members. By reaching out to the members of the community we create a sense of ownership and responsibility among community members for the health and well-being of their community. By engaging and working collaboratively with community members, we gain valuable insights into the unique needs and challenges of a community and work to develop effective programs and services that meet those needs. This also results in the effective promotion of behavior change and addressing health disparities, as it involves building trust and creating relationships between the organization and the communities that we serve.

Internship program and
Capacity Building

As part of our youth empowerment intervention, we offer internship programs and capacity-building opportunities to young people who use drugs and youth-led organizations. We offer training and capacity-building workshops to young people These trainings are tailored to the needs and interests of our participants, providing practical skills that they can apply in their personal and professional lives.
