The National Coalition of Nigerian Youth in Social Developmental is composed of Nigeria young men and women aged 18-35years working to bring about social development change. Members are individual youths or members / leaders of youth organizations / young changemakers addressing a social issue. Both circular and non circular youth organizations are welcome as members so long as their development work promotes growth and fosters peace, defends the intrinsic right to life, nurtures the family, and fosters a social climate favorable to integral development, solidarity, and mutual respect.
The coalition philosophy is based on the following
We recognize that the foundation of every society and sustainable development is hinged on the youths of the nation, thus making youths strategic stakeholders in nation building process.
We believe that youths have positive mindsets, patriotism, creativity, energy, determination, national vision and are working in every facet of Nigeria sector to contribute to nation building.
We believe that as emerging leaders, today offers us the best opportunity to begin to sow seeds of good works, selfless service and empathy through our freedom to belong to or own a youth organization for social change.
Whilst we acknowledge that youths are faced with many social challenges, we are convinced that by actively getting involved and networking together as emerging leaders, we can unite to bring more visibility to our isues and our works, and also form a formidable force to reckon with in nation building.
We believe that the Nigeria nation needs to scale up its investment and priority on the youth sector by steadily consulting with young people on their felt needs and partnering with youth organizations in meeting such challenges.
We affirm that Nigeria is country blessed with enormous endowment and that it is time for serious minded youths to organize and push for change, development and prosperity, not only for us but for coming generations.
We invite all those who share these convictions to join us in affirming them and give them effect in public life at all levels by visiting www.youngstars-foundation.org to join the Coalition of Nigeria Youths in Social Development.
