OLADEC YOUTH CLUB (OYC)
There is a growing concern worldwide over the prevalence of violent and non-violent conflicts on a daily basis. More worrisome is the fact that conflicts penetrate almost every facets of activity and have over the years, continued to leave devastating scars in the minds of every individuals, families and nations. Conflicts are common between siblings within the communities companies and between governments, particularly vulnerable are idle and poor youths who are unemployed out of school and without any source of livelihood.
Researchers on youth issues are increasingly aware of the existing ink between youth empowerment and the nature of the program introduced that are geared towards resulting conflicts in modern day societies. Youth organization must adapt winning strategies that would keep youths away from conflicts. It was based on this that OLADEC resolved to adapt an empowerment approach as a tool to redress the prevalence of conflicts in Nigeria empowering youth by making available income generating activities that can assuage the fights and the beckoning that pervade the communities where youths dominate.
