The Voices of Youth Coalition has elected its Regional Focal Points (RFPs). The RFPs are member organisations of the Coalition who have been elected by members to represent the regions they are located in. These organisations will serve as the main contact for the Coalition’s activities in the respective regions, and also serve as members of the Steering Committee of the Coalition.
Below are the organisations and the regions they represent:
|Ashanti||Network of Empowered Youth for Development|
|Brong Ahafo||Youth Without Borders|
|Central||Full Hearts Foundation|
|Greater Accra||Young African Leaders Network|

The Secretariat for the Coalition, YES-Ghana, wishes to congratulate these organisations.
The Voices of Youth Coalition is a youth-led platform for advocacy and action for youth participation in shaping the development agenda in Ghana. Given rising concerns over insufficient attention to critical issues affecting youth in Ghana and the lack of structures for mainstreaming youth into national policy-making, the Coalition provides an opportunity for youth to articulate their concerns and to make policy input.
Formed in January 2012 as the main mechanism through which the flagship Ghana Youth Manifesto was developed. In more recent times, the Coalition also drafted the People’s National Youth Policy to aid the advocacy for the revision of the National Youth Policy (2010). The Voices of Youth Coalition comprises young people and their organisations from all ten regions of Ghana, including local groups, student associations, and youth NGOs.
