Online Training on Conflict Resolution and Peace Building

YouLead is Africa’s flagship Youth Leadership Program, jointly owned by MS Training Centre for Development Cooperation and the East African Community. We aim to unlock the leadership potential of young individuals aged 18-35 across the East African Community (EAC) and beyond. It is co-owned and supported by the YouLead Consortium of State and Non-State Partners, the program is inspired by the United Nations Agenda 2030 and the African Union Agenda 2063. It seeks to amplify youth voices in regional governance and development processes, focusing on enhancing the capacity of young political leaders and empowering young business leaders. Through training, mentorship, and networking opportunities, YouLead aims to connect young leaders, enabling them to create sustainable solutions for their communities.

Conflict Resolution and Peace Building remains at the heart of the work on youth in politics of YouLead. Through this intervention, we will host the Virtual training on conflict resolution and peace building in East Africa centred on the theme “Surveying the opportunities for youth-driven conflict settlement, leveraging on the expansion of the East African Community (EAC)”. The training will address critical issues related to conflict resolution and peacebuilding with factors ranging from porous borders to proliferation of small arms and light weapons, internal strife, terrorism and insecurity among others. The training is thus critical for young people in the region to develop their knowledge and capacity to handle such emergencies and threats and be part of the community that  promotes unity, peace, stability and strength to defend the common interests of the East African Community (EAC).

Application Deadline: The application submission deadline is 13th September 2023, 23:59 PM East African time.
