Mission of YEAC
To assist youth at risk to become positive and contributing members of society by providing them with training opportunities in Entrepreneurship, Technology and Life Skills supported by other services including counseling, business coaching, mentoring, sports outreach and networking. Our centre is also a central virtual office hub for youth at risk to work on their projects with access to computers and equipment and meeting space.
Our main strategy is to empower and engage the Youths who feel disengaged from their communities by providing them with a conducive learning environment, counseling and opportunities to develop positive identities, confidence, increase social and professional networks. This we do through the various programs offered at the Youth Empowerment and Assistance Centre, YEAC.
Our Goal is to use the Positive Youth Development approach which builds on young people’s strengths and recognizes their unique contributions. We define Youth age bracket between 14-30 years.
