Schools Outreach Programme: “Understanding How African Union Works”

This mentorship program provides opportunity for young Africans in years 10-16 in junior and senior high schools to be mentored within the Africa we all want to see, led by the African Union.

Some components of “Understanding How African Union Works” also focus on the need to stop all forms of violence among the youths in schools, while exposing the various negative side effects of violence through lectures, talk shows and peer mentoring. This programme creates and establishes Support teams in schools to assist and provide support for identified year 10-16 students who may need more attention with their studies.
