The YOUTH COUNSELLING & SUPPORT (Y1) provides the necessary need assessment, counselling support and financial sponsorship to these beneficiaries under the Youth Program, similar to the Family Support component of the Children Program. Financial support for education are provided in the form of tuition fees, education materials and college uniform costs as per need to support the beneficiaries’ higher studies.
During this period, the beneficiaries are also provided counselling support as and when required through the Amics Activity Centre. Beneficiaries have to maintain a stated minimum level of academic performance to continue receiving funds to support their higher education.
Amics del Nepal encourages both traditional and alternative pathways to further education and training. Veterinary, film editing, metal casting, music studies are some of the courses our beneficiaries are enrolled in to develop their careers and opportunity for livelihood. The beneficiaries also have to enroll in the Youth Program’s Social Week project in their 1st year (grade 11), and Social Hours project in their 2nd year (grade 12) of high school respectively if they are studying in Kathmandu city.
Besides educational support, we also organize sports, health checkups and workshops to maintain the youth’s hygiene. There are currently around 22 direct beneficiaries that benefit through this project under AN’s Youth Program.
