HYLB brings together youth from across the Asia-Pacific region to support people and families in need of decent housing and the vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Every young person volunteering, fundraising, raising awareness and adding their voices in support of affordable housing can help families achieve strengths, stability and self-reliance they need to build better lives for themselves.
HYLB aims to sustainably engage the youth deeper, integrating them into the long-term work of community development and identifying committed young leaders who take strategic initiatives together to build sustainable communities. HYLB will nurture these young leaders by providing them with leadership skills, training and capacity building through identified ladders of engagement.
Habitat Young Leaders Build Leadership Academy and toolkit will equip young people with self-leadership skills and enable them to better lead others. Developed in partnership with the Center for Creative Leadership, the 10-module training includes two modules on sustainable communities as an introduction to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. Participants will also learn about the need for decent housing and identify specific community actions and projects that support their community.
