Youth Empowerment Synergy (YES-Ghana) is an ECOSOC-accredited NGO at the forefront of youth development policy, practice and research in Ghana. At YES-Ghana, we envision a world where every young person has a real chance to benefit from and participate in the development processes at local, national and international levels.
YES-Ghana, in partnership with 100% for the Children, Denmark, is implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Youth Action Campaign, an ambitious youth-led initiative that would revolutionise effective youth participation and demystify the development process for young people. The initiative is proactive because it stimulates youth action right from the outset of the SDGs and positions youth as important actors over the next fifteen years of Ghana’s pursuit of achieving the SDGs. As part of the project activities is the SDG Youth Essay Competition, that seeks to provide an opportunity for young people in all regions of the country to express their views and aspirations, as well as offer perspectives on critical development issues. Five (5) essays will be awarded with cash prizes, with all shortlisted entrants receiving certificates of recognition.
