People ask what I do for fun, since I'm always campaigning for so many causes. The answer never changes. I dedicate time to empowering youth in my community. Biologically I have no kids, so these students are priceless to me.

Nigeria has launched a new national youth policy, ten years after its last national youth policy was launched office.youthhubafrica.org/nigerian-natio…
There are quite a lot of interesting things we have seen in the new national youth policy, the most interesting will be the youth age definition from 18 - 35 years in the previous policy to 15 - 29 years in the new policy #youth #Policy #YouthPolicyNaija
However, there are lots of other interesting things. The policy in itself is very ambitious for the next five years in terms of why it hopes to achieve, one of such is bursaries to 100k eligible STEM undergrads in 5 years #YouthPolicyNaija

USA: Research indicates one quarter of 12-14 year olds who died by suicide were LGBT, which is very alarming.

Suicide disparity was shown to be greater for LGBT youth at younger ages.

What can we do to reduce risk?
#LGBTQ #Youth #Suicide #Prevention
LGBT youth who died by suicide were more likely to have mental health concerns, prior suicidality, and family problems contributing to their death.

These risk factors are often related to minority stress, which show how homophobia & transphobia create hostile environments.
Lack of social support can increase LGBT youth feeling that others do not care about them.

Homophobic & transphobic victimization can make LGBT youth feel like a burden to those around them.

Let's discuss yesterday's polls and begin our discussion on youth entrepreneurship with #GEMChats

This is a thread.
In a summary report of an OECD and the European
Commission seminar in 2014 , two things were key points:

1. #unemployment was at 10.9% in 2013 and double for #youth : 23.4%

2. 45% of youth prefer self-employment to
#employment, whereas 37% of adults prefer self-employment.
In Malaysia, MIDF reports find youth unemployment to be high - hitting a record 10.8% last year, attributed to a skills mismatch.

This is a significant 40.5% of total unemployment in #Malaysia.

So what can be done?
