Forum on the Status of Youth Refugees and Migrants YouLead Summit 2019 - Opportunity to Partner

Date: 11-13 November 2019

Venue: MS TCDC, Usa River – EAC headquarters, Arusha, Tanzania

This is an invitation for IAWG Members and their partner network to be part of this year’s YouLead Summit, the largest youth leadership gathering in East Africa.
YouLead Summit 2019 will be held under the theme “Youth at the Crossroads: Migration, Participation and Access to Opportunities”. The summit will focus on Youth in Politics, Youth in Business and Enterprise and the Status of Youth Refugee and Migrants in the EAC. It is unique opportunity to hear the voices of youth refugees and migrants, who make up part of the growing youth population in the region but often remain unseen and unheard.

YouLead Summit 2019 will provide a platform for the representatives of refugee and migrant communities in the East African Community countries to share their challenges and experiences, and to discuss the helping and hindering factors for refugees’ successful integration into their host communities. In addition, the summit will be an opportunity for governments, stakeholders and international humanitarian organisations to showcase innovative ways in which they are implementing durable solutions for refugee challenges.

The Summit is co-hosted by the Training Center for Development Cooperation (MS TCDC), the EAC Political Affairs Department and a wide network of partners in East Africa and beyond. First held in 2017, the summit brings together over 250 youth, youth leaders, government officials and youth-led organisations from the six EAC Member States to focus on crafting responses to the region’s rapidly growing youth population and their needs and challenges. The summit amplifies youth voices in key regional governance and development processes and reinforces youth contributions to inclusive and equitable development and decision-making processes at country level across various sectors.

Furthermore, it facilitates cross-country youth networking to accelerate EAC regional integration.
In order to continue working towards a region that includes youth voices in every facet of development and decision making, YouLead needs the support of organisations like yours. Your support means a lot to YouLead and to all the youth who attend the summit hoping to be involved in the implementation and tracking of the region’s development.
