THE ROLE OF SOUTH ASIAN YOUTH IN PEACE BUILBING(18)

Youth Development and Youth Leadership

Leaders are those who have magnetic and charismatic power by which they can easily influence, attract and motivate on others using their aptitude knowledge and sharp intelligence and keen understanding. ‘Youth development is a process which prepares young people to meet the challenges of adolescence and adulthood through a coordinated, progressive series of activities and experiences which help them to become socially, morally, emotionally, physically, and cognitively competent. Positive youth development addresses the broader developmental needs of youth, in contrast to deficit-based models that focus solely on youth problems.’ In this point of view, leadership programs help ‘to create a variety of high quality curricula that have been shown to change student attitudes towards violence, gang involvement and substance abuse.’

Awareness and Consciousness Raising Program

Youth are normally the target oriented group of the any program. The youth awareness programs are delivered at both the national, regional and local levels. However, youth should be committed to raising awareness and consciousness for long-term future by:

• Promoting and encouraging mechanisms and organizations to address long-term challenges.
• Conducting research on long-term challenges.
• Working on long-term issues such as preventing a space arms race.
• Building a network of interested individuals and organizations.
• Contributing to the work of related organizations.
• Giving presentations.

These initiatives will help the youths to make out day-to-day troubles more broadly as pertinent standards that can offer a positive and persuasive framework for common people in the society.

Representative APR 391%

Let's say you want to borrow $100 for two week. Lender can charge you $15 for borrowing $100 for two weeks. You will need to return $115 to the lender at the end of 2 weeks. The cost of the $100 loan is a $15 finance charge and an annual percentage rate of 391 percent. If you decide to roll over the loan for another two weeks, lender can charge you another $15. If you roll-over the loan three times, the finance charge would climb to $60 to borrow the $100.

Implications of Non-payment: Some lenders in our network may automatically roll over your existing loan for another two weeks if you don't pay back the loan on time. Fees for renewing the loan range from lender to lender. Most of the time these fees equal the fees you paid to get the initial payday loan. We ask lenders in our network to follow legal and ethical collection practices set by industry associations and government agencies. Non-payment of a payday loan might negatively effect your credit history.
