Youth Conference 2020

EMPOWERING THE YOUTH OF TODAY TO BECOME THE LEADERS OF TOMORROW - Dates extended!
 

The World Federation is excited to announce our first inaugural Youth Conference to be held in Mombasa, Kenya from Friday 13th March to Sunday 15th 2020. This conference is for both male and female delegates aged between 18 - 30 yrs old.

The conference will be split up into three parts:

1. Personal Development: Listen to talks from renowned speakers on topics such as how to boost your soft skills, how to build a network, how to inculcate a can-do attitude and how to public speak.

2. Discussion: Delegates will have a chance to discuss contemporary issues of female empowerment and social vices, finding out the root of these problems and then collectively discuss ways to solve them.

3. Solutions and Presentation: Delegates will get a chance to draft solutions to the problems outlined and conduct constructive debates with one another. The final solutions will be put up for a vote, and the successful ideas which are passed will be presented at the main The World Federation conference.

This conference is unique as it will couple empowerment with discussion and debate providing both a learning opportunity as well as ample room for participation. You will also be able to network with each other and get a taste as to how The World Federation works, whilst also being in with a chance to influence the current policy.

It would be incredible to provide solutions to problems faced by the youth by the youth themselves. Not only will you have the greatest understanding of these problems, but you can combine this with your creative edge and make an impactful difference to the lives of Khoja youth around the world.

 

  

"We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future"

- Franklin D Roosevelt

Sign up today and make sure you give yourself a chance to be part of a groundbreaking solution to some of the key challenges facing our youth today.

If you are would like to attend but are facing some financial constraints, please talk to us privately as The World Federation is authorised to subsidise the cost of travel for some delegates. Please email: [email protected].

 

What is the conference planning to tackle? There are many issues that our youth face today. The aim of this conference will be to talk about how our youths can move out of the mode of surviving and into the mode of thriving. We will focus on how to build leadership capacity amongst the youth which will enable them to take the lead in their home towns to address these challenges. Moreover, we will also be addressing some of these issues and get a greater understanding of the causes and the solutions.

 

What will be my role as a delegate? This conference is aimed to be as interactive as possible. It can only be successful if you speak and contribute to the discussion. Moreover, we would also like you to take the learning points from the conference back to your Jamaats and empower youth using the material. The empowerment of youth should be an organically growing process.

 

Do I need lots of previous experience? Great amounts of experience is not needed. We would like to see the passion for the community and whilst this is mostly demonstrated through volunteerism within the community, there are other ways you can demonstrate this. However, some previous experience within the community is desirable.

Will there we financial subsidies available for my travel? Yes, as flights to Mombasa could be quite costly, there is an opportunity to apply for subsidies. Email [email protected] and we will process this request in full confidentiality.


We look forward to welcoming you.
