AYC 2017 The Stage is set

#AYC2017 has begun. 5 years running, we are about to be#TheDivergent. It’s a gathering of teenagers who are on the path to being DIFFERENT in their actions and thoughts.

How do we say we are divergent when we are not different, our differences doesn’t show that we are weak or being cowardly, instead, it’s a show of distinctiveness in thought, act and vision Read More

THE TALES OF THE DIVERGENTS

Do not be quick to write us off because we do not follow crowds; but one thing we promise, you will look us up in history as being unique and different because we are the DIVERGENTS.

First we had to know “we have it in us” and be “Aware” of our capabilities; then we moved from being awakened to being courageous… this is our story for we are the “DIVERGENTS”.

We are young, creative and passionate. We are always ready for challenges of life as we have passed through the fire to emerge as purified gold. We are claiming our rightful place in life and nurtured by great champions at Activate Youth Camp.

We believe in ordinary acts of bravery, in the courage that drives us to stand up for each another, and lead the way even when everyone doubts us. Like Veronica Roth posits, for us now, “becoming fearless isn’t the point; that’s impossible. It’s learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it”;  Click here

About Us

ABOUT ACTIVATE YOUTH CAMP

“Activate Youth Camp’’ is a 7-day residential personal development program for students JSS1-SS2. Activate Camp is focused on building support networks for the participants through friendship and trust. Through self-belief, self-respect, a positive attitude and motivation, the participants will develop and harness methods, tools and skills to counter the challenges faced by today’s youth and basic personal, social and skills to deal with future challenges

During these 7 days, the students will participate in team building activities, as well as attend various sessions and presentations on youth related issues and skill acquisition awareness. They will be challenged physically, mentally and emotionally throughout the program. Activate youth Camp will provide its participants with a supportive environment to grow and develop. All participants learn and benefit from the camp in their own unique way.

The Activate Youth Camp is targeted towards the children in our public schools but not limited to them.

OUR OBJECTIVE

Activate Youth Camp, The Personal Development Camp helps youth to acquire Essential Life Skills.  Our approach in achieving these set of goals is to organize the youth camps and vacation programs to impart valuable skills through interactive and practical sessions and also give them the opportunity to meet with prominent and reputable people (role models) who are willing to impact this knowledge in them.

Our base objective is to awaken the hidden potentials in each of the participants hence our sign off “I have it in me”

During the camp, there will be 5 segments as listed below:

  • General Training Session – Addressing Leadership topics for personal development
  • Adventure to reinforce the skills learnt during Genera Training sessions
  • Sports to further teach on the life skills
  • Skills; giving them opportunity to explore a skill and begin the entrepreneurial spirit
  • Entertainment: Talents will be identified in the following areas- Drama, Music, Dance, Comedy & Poetry

VALUE PROPOSITION

This camp is aimed at provoking the Total development of the Nigerian Youth. Also activating the Entrepreneurial Spirit of the Young Nigerian, which is complementary to the Formal Degrees that they are, sometimes, compelled to obtain from tertiary institutions and also enhance their outlook to life vis-à-vis the realities obtainable in life.

BENEFITS OF THE CAMP

Participants will immediately enjoy:

  1. A Spirit of Enterprise, which has proven to be indispensable and crucial to the life of every adult in our dispensation.
  2. A Paradigm Shift, achieved from the interaction with Professionals in the Faculties and Skill Schools. These Professionals primarily have academic degrees in disciplines that are not related to their current Vocations. This value is key for the Participants to understand.
  3. Social Interaction: the targeted head count for this camp is 200 Children from classes JSS 1 to SS2. This exposes each participant to another capacity of interaction and social networking.
  4. Spiritual Guidance: primarily, this camp is guided by a Christian (Biblical) Standard and therefore, the participants will be taken through basic principles of godliness, Christian values and the responsibility of Christian lifestyles.
  5. Cognitive/Logical Empowerment: As a result of the pseudo-academic modules that will be expounded in the Camp, the participants will be helped towards learning how to adapt academics to life, apply academics to social and enhance their capacity to grow.

OUR PROMISE

Having worked with Children of various age brackets (including Teenagers and Adolescents), we are confident that the campers will find this camp experience impactful and leading to a life of commitment and growth.
