Call for application for Youth Academy for Social Protection to Promote Decent Work Principles Among Young Professionals

  1. Why this program for youth?

In a world of rapid change, access to information for young people is much needed to foster thoughtful, productive, and engaged citizens.  At the same time decent working conditions and labour standards continue to be threatened in many areas. In the world of work, young people everywhere need to develop a greater breadth of knowledge and skills to strengthen social dialogue, social protection and promote decent work in all sectors.  Today`s youth, indeed will be tomorrow`s decision makers and actors. If fundamental and structural changes should occur, it must be insured that those who will take responsibility in the future are prepared, trained and capable.

To increase the understanding of young professional and trade unionists around issues related to the world of work, labor relations and social dialogue,   FES and COTRAF under the project entitled “Social Dialogue 4 Sustainable Development (SD4SD): Promoting Effective Social Dialogue, Strengthening Social Protection, and Enforcing the National and International Labour Standards in Rwanda” seek to set up a “Youth Academy” for social protection to promote decent work principles among youth professionals.

The youth Academy recruits graduates from diverse fields, with demonstrated commitment to participate in a two-month training. Each month will cover 3 days for training.

A final selection of committed young professionals and trade unions with high potential of promoting social dialogue and decent work principles will be based on recommendations from employers or union representatives to ensure their commitment. The prospect young professionals will be provided with training that will cover different topics namely:  Rwanda labour law, ILO core labour standards, Negotiation techniques, social dialogue, and Sustainable Development Goal 8 (SDG8)

The training has the aim to provide a space for learning, reflection, and discussion among youth on the topic of decent work and social dialogue. Participants will learn not only through the training but also by sharing experience and good practice among themselves and through knowledge sharing, youth will be empowered to be tomorrow`s decision makers and actors with zeal and enthusiasm to contribute to the decent work debate.  At the end of the cohort training, participants will get a certificate of participation.
