Youth Development Program

Being aware of the huge potential of young people in the society, ActionAid China launched a “Youth Development Program” in 2006, sponsored by Britain’s Leaders’ Quest Foundation

 
The program trains a group of Chinese young people to work on rural development and localize the global development theory through the practice of rural development.
The program recruits selected college students and young people who are willing to work for rural development nationwide.
 
In the one-year period, the group will increase their ability of identifying and analyzing social issues as well as have real working experience and tools.
 

The program is also a platform for them to serve the society, accumulate experience in NGOs and development work, so that they can effectively realize self-development.
