By building a broad network of local youth organisations, government agencies and other key stake-holders, GYCO Academy works together with African youth from post-conflict societies to develop and strengthen their diverse individual and collective interests. Our vision is to unlock the full potential of young adults affected by the aftermath of war in Northern Uganda.
With our cooperating partners, we organise trans-formational conferences and workshops through which youth is encouraged to voice and advance their social, economic and political interests, as well as recognize available opportunities towards their development, growth and success. By setting up spaces of dialogue, influence and action, our mission is to create a lasting impulse for change.
