To provoke the younger generation to be good citizens, ACCTS has initiated and launched this youth conference first time in Nov. 2018. Young males and females come from several cities in Jordan to attend this one of a kind program that encourages the youth to be responsible, respectful, and to submit to those in positions of authority. This training program addresses the theme “The Youth and Genuine Citizenship”.
Board members, in addition to friends and partners, honor us by attending the opening ceremony. The conference addresses some vital, untackled topics that are of great importance and relevance to the younger generation in such a time like this. The workshops debate on youth responsibility towards their country as they learn the difference between theocracy and secularism and the nature of the Christian discourse.
This program not only does it build a general framework on how to think, and not what to think, but it also enables the youth to give some practical steps related to the current issues. They are encouraged to be effective, change agents who avoid negativity and know their role towards the issues of their country.
Some professional trainers conduct the workshops. These are normally friends or partners to the ministry.
During the conference, panel discussions take place where youth have the chance to listen to experts in the field, share their concerns, and raise their questions. Specialists and society key figures normally participate in or lead the panel discussion, such as consultants, corporate trainers, lawyers, ministers or former ministers, and perhaps human rights activists, depending on the topic of discussion.
Such an annual gathering of youth uplifts us, as they are full of potential and come with a zeal for their home communities. This program grants the youth the opportunity to enjoy a networking experience of fellowship and grants us the opportunity to empower them. Many express the benefit they gain from the sessions we host, as they represent a platform to share insights that would help them on their journey of achievement and influence in their positions of leadership whether in church, society or career life.
A planned strategy of follow-up is to be implemented to hold the youth accountable and help them work out their strategic plans in the areas of their lives where change needs to take place.
ACCTS desires to see these precious youth reap the fruit of change
and therefore impact their families, and eventually their society.
