CONCEPT OF TALANTA YOUTH CAMP AND BRIEF PROBLEM ANALYSIS
After the completion of Secondary Education ( Ordinary or Advanced level) education, form four and form six leavers face various challenges and problems including:
Failure to bring under control their dreams and vision they have carried for a long time, this failure is due to different reasons including but not limited to lack of right and adequate information on their vision, peer pressure, and losing their identity.
Failure to define their vision and their future life focus, some youth are completely not focused and they don’t know which direction to take.
Difficulties in or failure to manage their time and ‘new found’ freedom in communities (villages, towns and cities) since they are no longer under control of school regulations. As the result, youth fall into vagabond life, alcohol and drug abuse, early sex, unprotected sex and early pregnancy. All these contribute to the spread of HIV and AIDS. Also, vagabond life, alcohol and drug abuse lead youth to sexual abuse, other forms of gender violence and violation of law at large.
Lack or inadequate psychological preparations before joining universities
Failure to plan and manage their finance (from parents or government loans) when they join Universities, institutes of high learning or colleges
Domination of traditional thinking or philosophy to study so as to be employed rather than studying to acquire knowledge and skills for self employment creation.
WHAT DO WE AIM TO ACHIEVE?
We aim at changing the above mentioned challenges into opportunities! At the end of the program, the participants will be able to develop, define and take their dreams and vision to next level towards life enhancement. The zeal and enthusiasm of participants to live their dreams and vision will be aroused. Through this program, the participants will develop and acquire entrepreneurial thinking as a base for innovations, creativity, daring, planning, accountability and life valuing.
THE UNIQUENESS OF TALANTA YOUTH CAMP
Talanta Youth Camp will tackle and address real issues through mentors and coaches and create a platform for youths to identify their fears, threats, weaknesses and think of their strength and opportunities around them and around the globe.
Our facilitation approach is more than delivering papers, speeches and lectures, it is a coaching and mentoring approach which builds capacity to individuals to identify and work on their strength, weakness, threats and opportunities.
Our team makes the program unique, the program is designed and managed by people with experience of over 15 years in the area of youth leadership, youth development programs, counseling and guidance to youth, managing youth training and youth camps.
