About Me (biography or organization description)
Youth Intercommunity Network is a growing youth led development network committed to the establishment of just and sustainable communities. The initiative takes cognizance of the fact that the pace of change and development in any community will be determined by the local communities in all their diversity and capacity for bold and imaginative thinking and their determination in support of their own development. It is our conviction that an effective development strategy is best delivered through community led initiatives and draws upon the diverse experience of local communities. Youth Intercommunity Network functions to foster both youth led community and inter-community learning as an avenue of transfer of knowledge and skills towards positive change at all levels. Through a diverse range of implementation strategies, Youth Intercommunity Network provides communities with a platform to identify and address their problems through youth-led action.
To foster collaboration, partnerships and networks that inspire communities towards social justice, development and mutual understanding through youth led action.
To promote knowledge transfer and community learning within and between communities as an avenue towards sustainable community development through youth led action.
To promote community participation in determining their own development by introducing and supporting actions towards that end.
