Youth Empowerment Program

Our Youth Empowerment Program is dedicated to nurturing the potential of young individuals aged 15-21 through a transformative mentorship program. Our mission is to inspire, guide, and equip them with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to thrive personally and professionally. Our goal is to create a comprehensive Youth Mentorship Program that addresses the holistic development of young individuals. Our program addresses crucial issues facing young individuals through workshops, mentoring, career development, and community engagement. 

We aim to build a stronger, more vibrant community because empowering our youth is an investment in our community's future success and sustainability. 

The Youth Empowerment Program aims to achieve specific objectives, including a significant increase in graduation rates, enhancement of youth employability skills and knowledge, and fostering positive relationships between youth participants and their community.
To attain these goals, NewLife has implemented the following:

Educational Workshops: NewLife offers workshops focusing on essential life skills such as communication, time management, financial literacy, and problem-solving, providing tutoring and academic support for youth excellence in their studies. 

Mentorship: NewLife will connect youth with experienced community professionals for life and career guidance, fostering valuable skills, knowledge exchanges, and meaningful intergenerational connections. We aim to provide counselling references for formal mental health support when needed.

Career Development: NewLife organizes career exploration sessions, goal-setting workshops, job fairs, networking events, and bring-your-kids-to-work days to expose youth to diverse career paths, connecting them with potential employers and educational institutions. 

Community Engagement: This program encourages active youth participation in community-centred initiatives, instilling a sense of responsibility and civic engagement. Through NewLife’s volunteer program, youth will relate to various communities.
