Building Sustainable Peace in Sierra Leone
Developing Youth Leaders
A Rotary Global Peace Grant #1981756
Bo, Sierra Leone | January 20-24, 2020
MBBI’s Sierre Leone team, alongside support from Rotary International, has developed two sets of impactful trainings in Sierra Leone. The programs are intended to provide in-depth and long-term support of capable and empowered youth leaders who are: (1) skilled in conflict prevention and resolution, and who (2) are empowered to take active roles in sustaining peace and building societal resilience, and (3) are actively engaged in Sierra Leone’s ongoing development.
The Youth Leadership curriculum, designed for participants ages 21-35, raises awareness of leadership potential of young people who comprise the majority of the population, empowering them with skills to address issues such as unemployment and conflict management in order to become change agents for non-violent problem-solving and serve as resources for community development.
The program is designed to provide training via a core, 5-day intensive learning program followed by personalized coaching, a robust network of in-country colleagues and peers comprising a vibrant support system, ongoing training and skill refreshers (live and virtual), and a dedicated team and resource materials available as appropriate to facilitate leadership and change agent processes. Specific training blends theory and practical learning in leadership, conflict management, communication, civic responsibilities, personal leadership and development processes, team effectiveness, among other topics. Approximately six months after the original 5-day session, participants will participate in a webinar to share experiences and practices.
