Capacity Building

As part of effort aimed at promoting meaningful youth participation and leadership, the National Youth Council of Malawi (NYCOM) engages its affiliates and other youth leaders in capacity building activities.

Through a wide range of need-based trainings, workshops, mentorship sessions and development of materials for youth organisations, in collaboration with our development partners we develop and strengthen institutional capacity of youth organisations and skills and abilities of youth leaders in order to enable them to develop competencies and skills that can make them more effective and sustainable, thus developing their potential to contribute towards the sustainable development of their country.

Some of our recent capacity buildings initiatives have been in areas such as; Programme Planning and Development, Project Development and Proposal Writing, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting, Youth Engagement and Inclusion, Communication and advocacy,  Financial Management, Youth Leadership and Empowerment for HIV Prevention, leadership and management, Livelihoods Skills, and Peer Education.
