Tunisian Scouts Young Voices Training & Forum
After the success that the very first edition have known , the "Young Voices Training & Forum " project is launched in its 2nd edition by the Tunisian Scouts in partneship with Danish Scouts .
The event has brought scouts & guides from all over the country as well as non-scouts participants within the same age range from different civil society components .
Together , these 70 ambitious boys & girls ( comparing to only 49 for the first edition ) were gathered to attend a series of workshops in several fields ( advocacy , debating skills , public speaking ...) within 4 days training were they interacted with each other and got to acquire new skills .
And .. it didn't stop there! In order to apply what they've learned , participants had to tackle with different issues inspired from the Tunisian reality using the skills acquired . For this year , the two main issues were " The role of youth into fighting corruption" & "The cultural & sportive activities within educational institutions and the way to evolve them " and participants had to seek solutions and present them during the forum day which were attended by high level gorvernment responsibles who were expert in the issues mentionned such as the Secretary of State on Youth who interacted with participants solutions and questions .
Being the president of the first edition and a coach during the second one , I acknowledge the impact this project is having on its young participants as it opens wide their eyes on issues they're highly concerned by . Therefore , they really contribute into making the change instead of just assuming what's happening like the majority of today's youth .
The 3rd edition of Young Voices is coming soon !!!
