To ensure meaningful and effective youth participation in SRHR movement, it is important to build youth’s capacity particularly within issues and how to manage the organization’s sustainability. Japan Family Planning Association on 23-24th December 2011 conducted a training and exchange meetings with peer counsellor across Japan. This national convention was held to increase young people’s skills in doing peer education for adolescents.
The two-day training was filled with training talks and contraceptive exhibition. There were about 100 people participating in this training. Besides getting training, they also presented their work in youth center in each province and shared their common goals to move forward as a part of JFPA.
It was interesting that the participants also distributed educational materials such as brochure on STI, Dating Violence, and condoms at the end of the training!
Do you have plans to conduct training with young people on SRHR ? What material that you would like to be integrated within the training? Do tell us! 😀
