Congratulations on being appointed as an Intern of YUVA. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you on-board. We are pleased that you have chosen to be part of the YUVA secretariat, which undoubtedly gives you the opportunity to work in a dynamic, multicultural environment. It is an exciting and unique challenge to be part of such a working environment because it leads to a broader understanding of every part of the country.
Everything we do at YUVA has just one goal: the sustained well-being of children and young people, especially the most vulnerable. We work with families, communities, and partners to ensure that children and young people enjoy good health, are educated for life, experience the love of parents and their surroundings, and are cared for, protected, and participating. More importantly, we serve all children and young people — regardless of religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.
As a YUVAN, you will be entitled to promote, protect and advance young people’s human rights by building leadership and strengthening children and youth-led initiatives and movements. YUVA’s values are based on the assumption that leadership for our generation is not a singular concept, but embodies the challenge of bringing together people from diverse fields and schools of thought. We have the collective challenge of building leadership that can be reflected within our communities as much as in our policies.
Again, thank you for joining us, and welcome to the big YUVA family!
