Opportunity Residential Project

Primary tabs

Project of the Youth Development Agency

INFLUENCE is a one-of-a-kind event; a gathering of Gold Award participants from around the world for the purpose of dialog and debate on the most pressing youth issues. It is a chance for young people to share their stories, identify their challenges, and develop strategies that can help influence their futures. It is a mix of topical group discussion sessions, workshops on skills vital for young people in education and employment, team work and leadership experiences, and an array of fun outdoor and social activities. It is designed specifically with the outcomes of the Residential Project in mind and will be delivered by experienced YDA staff along with other experts in the field of youth development.

INFLUENCE 2018 is taking place in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt from 28 December 2018 – 2 January 2019.

Interested participants can pre-register through the website. Pre-registration is free and without obligation and those pre-registering will receive a discounted rate upon registration.
