Project: Youth Advocacy and Communications
Program of Study: Social Work, Kyambogo

“Youth Advocacy and Communications as a project, honestly, has enabled us to learn more than expected. Especially me, [...] I’ve been able to learn how to work cross- culturally and embrace cultural diversities”

“[Youth Advocacy and Communications] is important because, first of all, it’s dealing with the youth and youth have lots of issues and experiences, you know? [...] And if you give them a platform, it will help us as CEED and as a community to see how we can try to listen to these challenges that face our youth. To listen to their experiences. And through listening to them, through this platform given to them, through radio talk shows...we are able to learn and inspire other youth out there.”

Branden On
Year: 2017
Project: Youth Advocacy and Communications
Program of Study: Communication Studies, Concordia

“Communications & Youth Advocacy Project...the main purpose is to find young achievers and empower the youth voice in Gulu. [...] Especially for an NGO that’s coming in from somewhere else, to not try to be like “oh we’re giving you this”. It’s more like “we’re helping you find what’s already around”, which is really good and helpful.”

“[My time with CEED]...Long! It’s not a bad thing. You always see or hear about these people going to places for like two weeks or something. And it’s like what are you really doing in that amount of time? [...] It’s been pretty eye-opening, learning a lot of stuff that I didn’t think I would learn.”

Courtney Witter
Year: 2017
Project: Community Events
Program of Study: Sociology & Human Relations, Concordia

“The Community Events Project is going out into the community and finding an issue you want to focus on and then doing an event for the youth community. So, I think it’s important because you need to find a way to connect to youth in a way that’s both exciting but also where they’ll learn something from it”

“I definitely learned how to handle meetings better and talk with lots of different people and meet with different organizations, which was really cool [...] Starting a project from start to finish with the reports and the paperwork was something I hadn’t done before”
