The focal point of the initiative was to streamline the skills acquired into social development and ensuring that the youth would be well skilled in the future to contribute positively towards the development of nation and to cut down the unemployment situation in the country.
Aims and objectives of the centre
The thrust of the programme therefore had its concentration on fruitful engagement of the young people during their free times and was done with the compliment of their Parents during holidays.
In accordance with administrative rules, the centre’s operational mandate defined Programme areas that included; training in the field of fine arts, performing arts, and physical culture.
This was done in cognizant with the cultural policy of Ghana which talks about diversity in unity. And on that note much of the emphasis were on promoting patriotism among the youth intended to set the space for the evolution of the youth cultural movement.
Most of the youth trained were people living in deprivation and disaffection. .
The Centre has appealed to the government and benevolent individuals and institutions to support them to meet the needs of the youth and to give them life and hope, choices and aspirations.
This will make it imperative to provide an equal window of opportunity for the young people to join hands with other lead children organisations to increase the understanding and a wider visibility of their plight.
