Fonfacio in Myanmar - YLDC Yangon

Youth Leadership & Development Center in Yangon, Myanmar

The YLDC Yangon is built on the success of the former Youth Leadership Program (YLP)which ran from 2005 to early 2016. In 2005, at the request of Cardinal Bo, Fondacio began the YLP in and for Yangon Archdiocese.

The purpose was to form integrated young leaders, equip them with skills, and deepen their faith so that they could be at the service of their families and communities. Some of them continued their formation at IFFA.

To-date more than 400 young adults have been formed from all dioceses in Myanmar. All of them are effectively employed in various international NGOs, Companies and Church offices. Since 2009, the CBCM (Catholic Bishops Conference Myanmar) requested that the formation program be made available to all dioceses.

YLDC Yangon aims to open up opportunities for young people, particularly the disadvantaged, and get them ready for work; equip them with skills, deepen their faith so that they could be at the service of their families, communities and dioceses.

 

Fondacio Myanmar’s Life Skills Module aims to open up opportunities for young people, particularly the disadvantaged, and get them ready for work. Under the second module, the continuing program, is the Youth Leadership formation which aims at training young leaders to work effectively and harmoniously with other youth in their communities and dioceses.

During both modules the students are encouraged to take part in income generation projects for example card making or T-shirt printing. At the end of the Youth Leadership module all the students are given the opportunity to do some ‘on the job training’ in areas of their choice – flower arranging, or restaurant work, some even spent time in the Green Pastures Project.
