The strategy is to establish AYC hubs across ASEAN by partnering with existing NGOs and social enterprises in ASEAN countries to implement the training program, and to mobilizes financing for operations through the SAYF fund with private or public sector support.
AYC's approach to 21st-century skills training builds on the Innovative Teaching and Learning (ITL) Research's 21st Century skill rubrics and study on the most effective models for professional development.
AYC applied this research to youth leadership practice to make a relevant framework and workshop design for 21CS application, anchored on SDGs In line with AYC's vision to enable youth as partners for sustainable growth in the region.
The design and conduct of the training are contextualized based on the demographic segment of the trainees (ie. highschool, university student, young professional, youth in poor rural/urban areas) and available resources.
The expected outcome: Each individual is able to apply 21st-century skills in carving their own leadership pathway towards contributing to the SDG they care for the most. This makes it meaning or purpose-driven.
The graduates of the training volunteer to conduct free 21st-century skills training to our partner communities as part of their commitment.
Graduates' evolving stories are published in our community blog, where they periodically edit it as their leadership progress in their school, workplace, or communities. This captures the dynamic nature of leadership.
