YOSSO Youth Complete Leadership Training

By Prosper Mambo, 26/09/2011

Across the Manzese slum, Dar es Salaam city of Tanzania at YOSSO Ukombozi center this  month, more than 15 YOSSO youth graduated from Peer Leadership programme, our intensive three month program, marking the end of another successful training. The coaches and YOSSO staff who worked with these kids over the past few months got to see the youth talk about what they’d learned and recognized for their achievements.
Those include not only completing a training of HIV education and life skills, but various courses in event management, leadership trainings and building relationships with their fellow YOSSO participants and coaches. Graduates included in and after school youth who attend YOSSO sport programme at Ukombozi centre.
