Be a Young Policy Influencer

Three-day Training for Youth- learn how to develop the right skills to engage in policymaking related to youth employment.

Have you wondered about key issues in your community that hamper you from getting your ideal job? Do you have ideas about implementing change – but don’t know how or where to start?

Then this is your chance! We, UNDP and API, are conducting 2 three-day training sessions, in Siem Reap (15-17 Feb) and Phnom Penh (22-24 Feb) 2019. We are looking for interested and motivated youth with different backgrounds and hometowns. What skills do you lack or would you like to improve in order to engage in effective policy dialogues with decision makers? Leadership, communication or advocacy skills, critical thinking, analytical skills or something completely different? – Let us know and we will adapt the training to it.

Strengthened with the new capabilities, you will develop an advocacy plan focused on key issues related to youth employment, and will have the opportunity to actively address these issues and propose solutions in a self-led meeting with representatives from the government, private sector, and relevant stakeholders –  thereby initiating real change!

This project is under The United Nations Joint Programme on Youth Employment (UNJP), which aims to supports to the Royal Government of Cambodia to address issues to relate to low productivity, poor employment, limited skills and access to decent employment opportunities faced by youth. It intends to focus on facilitating young people’s entry to labour force while reducing inequalities, particular for the disadvantaged and vulnerable groups, and ensuring that young women and men are better able to meet labor demand in the country.

Successful participants will not only have the opportunity to engage with key policy decision makers on youth employment related issues, but also receive a certificate of participation from UNDP for their hard work!

  • All DSA of participants in the training and project activities is supported by UNDP!
