The Lviv Region Youth Employment Center (LYEC) proposed Youth Leadership Program attempts to address the issue of youth employment in Lviv with a two tier approach: a training program for future educators and childcare workers and a club and camp program for local youth (ages 12-16). The primary focus of the program would be leadership and English language along with supporting themes (academic achievement, professional and entrepreneurial attitudes, English language, environmental conservation, positive health practices and gender equality). Volunteers would be university or institute students working for the center as part of a practicum toward their specialty. The initial project phase would be one year with four major steps: 1.) Spring: volunteers are trained by professional trainers and qualified members of the LYEC staff, 2.) Summer: volunteers run the Youth Leadership Camp, 3.) Fall/Winter: volunteers run the Youth Leadership Club. At the end of the first year, volunteers will pass on their experience and knowledge to a new group of Volunteers who will then continue the camp/club cycle. Partnership funds are needed to pay for transportation as well as food and lodging for Volunteers and children who cannot afford to pay the camp fees.

The project goal is to build a school that will benefit the students, parents, and residents of a tiny traditional village in Cameroon. All funds for this project will go toward building materials and labor needed to construct a two-classroom building. This school building project will benefit the community in two distinct ways. First, the project will enable students to stay in place and attend school without the difficulties of traveling a long distance each day. As of now, over half of the students walk to neighboring villages to attend school. This project will allow the students, ages 5-23, to stay and go to school in their own village, rather than walking every day to a school outside of their community. As many as 80 students could attend the school. After the completion of the school building, the students will be involved with The World Map Project. A map of the world will be painted on one side of the building to promote geography literacy.

The second advantage of the project will be to enroll girls in the school and conduct a series of workshops on the importance of girls’ education. Few parents send their girls to school because they would rather have them stay at home and help with the cleaning and cooking. They are brought up to think their education is not worthwhile, for their future is to inevitably stay in the home. In addition to the construction of the building, sessions will be held by the Peace Corps Volunteer, alongside the Parent Teacher Association to promote the enrollment of girls into the school. We will have monthly interactive sessions on family development. Empowering women and girls within the community and what role that plays in development are critical issues that we will discuss and look at ways to address these issues.
