Moses Dixon on Ways to Help the Youth Within Communities
The youth are the future of every community. They are usually the most energetic and ambitious members of the community. They embody what we want people to be in the future; kind, enthusiastic, and intelligent. That is why every community must ensure that their youth are in top shape and make a difference in society.
Here are some ways how one can help the youth within the community:
Organize Youth Programs
National Youth Service (NYSC) is one example of the many youth programs. This program is meant to provide the youth with guidance and skills to aid them in their future endeavors. Another example of a youth program would be planning events for young people or putting up educational activities within the community.
Provide Jobs for the Youth
This could be in the form of volunteer work or actual employment. Youth should not be idle but always looking for a way to remain productive and valuable within their communities. More jobs will allow them to earn income that they can use for themselves or save up for future endeavors.
Provide Mentorship Programs for the Youth
Mentoring is a great way to encourage the youth within a community. It can help provide insight and inspiration to young people so that they may not be led astray by the many distractions in society today. Volunteering as a mentor is an excellent way of reaching out to young people and guiding them along their paths in life.
Encourage Youth Within the Community to Become Involved in Solving Problems
With today’s modern technology, almost everyone has access to the internet and social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. One can easily set up events online or share some thoughts on a particular topic through these channels. This will allow for better communication and collaboration between different people from different generations, backgrounds, and walks of life.
Assist the Youth with Their Academic Endeavors
Young people should always have high regard for education, and all communities have to assist in their academic pursuits. It could be through financial support or by showing them how important education is and inspiring them to do well in school.
These are some of the ways one can help youth within their community. Implementing these ideas and processes will allow for a more productive and holistic community.
