Uganda Unites is a Youth led project that seeks to connect high school and university students from different religious and ethnic backgrounds across the country, equip and inspire them to be agents of change in their communities through peace building and leadership development skills. We seek to promote a culture of nonviolence, peace and nationalism among the participants in a nationally diverse platform.
The conference will combine training in skills of conflict transformation and peace education with camp and experiential activities. This will include sports (football, basketball), crafts (painting, drawing) and arts (music, drama, dance and photography). The evenings will be themed on different aspects of the program to facilitate interactions among participants. In attendance will be volunteers from East Africa Countries and other international support teams.
The Future Leaders Conference is the flagship annual event of Uganda Unites. It is a 4-day residential conference that brings together high school youth to equip them with skills in relational peace building and reconciliation, and to inspire them towards positive social engagement in their schools and communities. Participants will be selected from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds, different social demographics, and from all the various regions in Uganda.
Uganda Unites is inviting you to apply to be one of volunteer mentors. Your main role will be to craft and implement strategies that will help student participants get the most out of the conference itinerary.
Deadline for form submit is 25th March 2016
