Starting with their 60-second advocacy pitch, the 7th Youth Initiative members have launched their campaigns on various social media platforms so far. After examining the issues from last winter’s review of the NYP, the members came up with four issues to develop further into advocacy campaigns: Share your story (mental health awareness), #IWish (Education), Highlighting Responsible Stories (Governance) and Every Job is Noble (Economy).

As of now, all projects are up on Facebook, where the members have been sharing messages based on their content calendars developed after receiving training on leveraging social media platforms and tools. 

“The only way out of this mess was to grow stronger and let no one look down on me. As time passed, all the hate that I received never bothered me…it always made me feel like I can be an independent person so that I can walk down my path.”

(Excerpt from Health & Wellbeing group).
