Youth Training Programm Activities


Youth Training

SEEDA focusing youth training on capacity development, social cohesion, and leadership in rural villages in Sri Lanka is crucial for several reasons.

Capacity Development: Enhancing the skills and capabilities of young people in rural areas equips them with the knowledge and competencies needed to contribute to their communities' development. This includes technical skills related to agriculture, small-scale entrepreneurship, vocational training, and soft skills such as communication, problem-solving, and critical thinking.

Social Cohesion: Youth training programs allow people from diverse backgrounds to unite, fostering social cohesion and promoting a sense of community belonging. By participating in collaborative activities and projects, youth develop bonds of trust and solidarity that transcend ethnic, religious, and socio-economic divides, contributing to peace and stability in rural areas.

Leadership Development: Training programs focusing on leadership development empower young people to take on community leadership roles. By providing them with opportunities to hone their leadership skills, cultivate self-confidence, and foster a sense of responsibility, these programs enable youth to become agents of positive change and catalysts for community development initiatives.

Empowerment and Resilience: Equipping young people with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to navigate life's challenges empowers them to overcome adversity and build resilient communities. Youth who have undergone training in capacity development, social cohesion, and leadership are better equipped to address socio-economic inequalities, environmental degradation, and other pressing issues facing rural areas in Sri Lanka.

Sustainable Development: Investing in youth training that promotes capacity development, social cohesion, and leadership contributes to the long-term sustainability of rural development efforts. By building the capacity of young people to become active participants and leaders in their communities, these programs lay the foundation for inclusive growth, social justice, and environmental stewardship that benefit current and future generations.
