Youth Community Involvement

I. Introduction

Child and Youth Development Program is a non-political, and non-religion oriented, initiative of the Educational Development Institute, implemented by the Westline Schools and the Northline School. We organize this program to provide extra help to the children and youth in order to bring a bright future for them. We really want the children and adolescents to see the reality in the society.

II. Project Background

  • Educating children and youth is the most important and urgent task for Cambodia’s sustainable development; yet, most parents, teachers, and educators have not paid enough attention to quality education for these dear ones. We have seen more and more juvenile delinquency, we have seen more and more double income families, we have heard more and more teachers worrying about their family’s economics more than students’ knowledge, but we have noticed very few actions to raise the awareness about these social issues.
  • Vision: All Cambodian children and youth will enjoy happy life through happy family, quality education and bright future.
  • Mission: CYD will achieve this vision through fulfilling 4 important missions:
    1. Child and Youth Development Program
    2. Parent Education Program
    3. Education Development Program
    4. Youth Community Involvement
  • Objectives: CYD attempts to ensure that all children and adolescents will:
    1. be properly nurtured and developed;
    2. enjoy happy home;
    3. receive the best care and quality education;
    4. display leadership initiatives and good social attitude;

III. Engagement Objectives

CYD attempts to ensure that all children and adolescents will:

  1. be properly nurtured and developed;
  2. enjoy happy home;
  3. receive the best care and quality education;
  4. display leadership initiatives and good social attitude;

IV. Scope

Without the assistance and involvement of the teachers and students in the Westline School, the projects we are implementing could not be achieved. We have been working on some projects in the Children and Youth Development Program namely: promotion awareness on health and environment issues, rights and responsibilities of the children and youth in the society, value of living, and road safety network. Moreover, we also build relationship of trust and asked for technical assistance with various local organization and non-governmental organization (Handicap International, CHEMS), Departments and Ministries in the government as well to sustainable development in the field of education.

V. Conclusion

Children and Youth Development Program is one of the programs in the Westline School organized by the Educational Development Institute in closely cooperation with the Westline School. We organize this program in the spirit of providing extra help not only for the students in the Westline School, but also we offer extra help both emotional and physical assistance to the poor and needy community. In this regard, we strongly contribute to the development of educational sector in Cambodia.
