Workshop to modify Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) Implementation Plan

Youth, who are drop out of school without completing their graduation due to poverty or other reasons, are in the process of stewards for natural resource management. Compass program works with these disadvantaged youth of Cox’s Bazar and Bandardan districts to develop their leadership and vocational capacity along with linking them with suitable employment opportunities. To modify and roll out this plan, on February 2, 2021, Compass Program organized a workshop in Cox’s Bazar with 31 participants including representatives of government and non-government organizations, hotel owners’ associations, tourism company and local youth. Participants highlighted 18 technical trades, such as gardening service, vermicompost, eco-tourism for the youth. Compass also explored potential collaboration areas with the participating organizations in the event.
