The 7th edition of Activate Youth Camp is upon us. It’s amazing that we have made it to the seventh year, a number that reminds us of perfect order. We could not have come this far without the vital support we got from family, friends and partners. That is why we are saying THANK YOU for the unquantifiable contributions you have made towards the sustenance of this great vision.
Our theme at the AYC 2019 is “The Convergence”.
FOCUS: With The Convergence, we are bringing it all together, exploring more of the areas and issues that matter the most to this present generation. This conversation will revolve around the tools (human, ideas and mind set) that will enable the building of a better and greater Nigeria that we all so desperately want. Once again, accent would be placed on character building, handling distractions and how to create an ecosystem of important and beneficial values that safeguard young lives. In all, there would be five distinct segments namely: General Training, Skills, Sports, Journey of Guided Learning and Entertainment.
We would be playing host to 300 teenagers, 35 Facilitators, 60 Volunteers and coaches this year. Tying it all together through positive and encouraging relationships and human-powered recreation, we hope to achieve a balance that supports 360 degree fun learning. Over the years, the benefits of AYC to the participants have included, but not limited to, increased self-esteem, confidence, creativity, self-sufficiency, leadership skills and, above all, ability to make wise choices. Our Champions will continue to learn to Think Right, Think Fast, Talk Right, Walk Right and Live Right because they are champions.
At the moment, we are working hard to ensure that this edition is yet another fantastic 7 days packed with so much fun, great learning and unlearning in order that the true champions resident in each one of our participants would emerge.
We look forward to having you at the camp this year because you have IT in you!
Omooba, Kikelomo A
