We at International Youth Alliance for Peace (IYAP) believe that young people have the energy, creativity and the will to tackle tasks differently, in their lifetime. They are an invaluable asset to the development of the country and the communities. With the right guidance and support, they have the potential to become trailblazers of positive change. In this cause, we at IYAP facilitate the creation of an interactive platform, connecting young people and a multitude of stakeholders, including the government, civil society, private sector corporations and development partners, via a range of youth-led initiatives.
To invest in innovative ideas, convene interested parties, share the knowledge and advocate for change, in support of working towards sustainable social development via youth empowerment.
We are a youth led organization working towards building a world, supporting mutual understanding and respect.
Young people have important views to share and contribute, thus we encourage the participation of young people in decision making and governance of our organization.
Young people should make the core leadership roles in the governance of organizations and institutions that work with or make decisions that affect young people’s lives, and be provided with opportunities for meaningful participation in the democratic process.
We recognize, respect and value the differences among us and believe that acknowledging and celebrating these differences remains pivotal in moulding stronger individuals and stronger communities.
We all have a place in the economic, social, political and cultural life of our society and, for our part, we enrich our organization through diversity.
