5-Day Training Workshop on

The Youth Empowerment and Leadership Development (YELD) program, is a joint venture of the Department of Criminology, University of Peshawar, and International Organization of Migration (UN-IOM) Community Resilience Activity-North (CRA-N), that aims to prepare young people to be healthy, productive, and engaged citizens. We believe that educated, employed, and engaged young people possess the power to solve the toughest problems facing our communities. Every young person therefore deserves the opportunity to realize his or her full potential. The proposed program is a catalyst for change that help youth learn, work and lead. Recognizing that no one section of society alone has the resources or expertise to effectively address the myriad challenges facing today’s youth. We are constantly mobilizing a community of businesses, government departments, and civil society organizations - each committed to developing the power and promise of young people.

For this purpose, a total number of 160 students enrolled in different academic programs at the University of Peshawar belonging to the newly merged districts (NMDs) of Khyber, Orakzai, Kurram, and North Waziristan by YELD team (40 students from each district, 20 Male & 20 Female) will be trained through a Five Days Training.

The First training of this series will be starting from the 21st June to 25th June, at the University of Peshawar for the students of Khyber District.

Objectives of the YELD:

  • To promote intellectual, social, emotional, moral and physical development of the students for a prosperous and peaceful future
  • To develop critical thinking, leadership potential, values of peaceful co-existence, self-development, peacebuilding, thinking skills, civic engagement
  • To appreciate diversity, human rights and rights of the vulnerable groups especially women and children
  • To strengthen community cohesion through increased trust and dialogue within and among groups (tribal, religious, political etc.)
