Assets Today – the Future You
Young Adult Conference (YAC) intends to create a non-formal conference where young adults can acquire Asset building skills [capacities] through a programme of specifically chosen workshop themes; community volunteerism; speech presentations; discussion and debate; networking; music and theatre, role exchange and games.
YAC has been initiated to give young adults an opportunity to learn new Assets, nurture those they have; enabling them to flourish during their transition through adolescence. YAC helps foster learning of many socio-cultural, community, environmental issues that without this additional knowledge leaves them vulnerable during their teenage growth. The message is clear! The fewer ASSETS acquired during transition a host of detrimental possibilities arise. It is consistently demonstrated that the more developmental ASSETS young people acquire the better their chances of succeeding in school, becoming happy healthy contributing members of their communities and society.
“AGENTS for CHANGE”
The 13/18 year olds who felt they could contribute to personal, environmental and community growth gaining other Assets to empower the change. This is an adult inspired conference but decision led by the young adults themselves.
YAC is not a one off event but is designed to be an Annual conference with follow up workshops through 2018 to strengthen the new ASSETS they have acquired.
