Theneed to provide the youthful generation with relevant information onhow to face life’s challenges and achieve their goals is acute.Importantly to understand, majority of the youths aged between 15 and25 years are lucking proper guidance to overcome the societalproblems with great influence on future outcomes of the goals theyset out to pursue. Lack of self-belief among the youth especiallygirls is one of the key factors that inhibit them to realize theirgoals. Participation in Premature sex, brainwashing by politics anddrug abuses are other societal challenges the youth encounter intheir daily endeavors because of limited information accessible tothem.

Aglobal nonprofit organization has seen that the main source ofinformation to the youth so far has been from the internet and theinformation obtained is not accurate. The organization has seen theneed for providing proper guidance and credible information to theyouth with the importance it deserves before it is too late. To meetthis needs the organization proposes a grant program to hold youthempowerment conferences that will empower, influence and celebratethe youth. This conferences will guide the youth to develop attitudesand skills, which will help them achieve their set goals in life. thegrant request is directed to the government and other organizationsthat have the matters of the youths at heart to contribute positivelytowards the noble cause.

Thetarget group of the program is youths on the global level who lackrelevant guidance as they grow into adulthood exhibiting a slack inconfidence to confront and solve their social problems head on, thereare about 1.1 billion youths in the world and they constitute 18% ofthe total global population. By working with reputable guest speakerswho are invited to the youth conferences from all over the societalclass, the program takes into account all the stakeholders concernedin shaping the youth. Moreover the program seeks to inspire the youthto hold their own conferences and share what they have learnt andbenefitted from the program. Without the program the majority of theyouth will lack proper tools to go through challenges in life andalso lack opportunities to achieve their goals and this willconsequently make the future uncertain.

The importance of this program is greater and thelonger it is delayed the more the situation becomes worse and thedamage may be irreparable.
