Through this lived experience of the dignity of the person, young people are able to affirm life at all levels of society.

Training Programs
The certified online training program was developed to offer in-depth training to young leaders. The program requires an intensive commitment on behalf of the member. Training is a prerequisite for international internships and United Nations conference participation. Certified members build the Alliance by introducing and training other young people to the WYA foundational ideas.

The training covers four major sections:
1. Philosophy of the human person
2. International documents and institutions
3. Key issues at the international level (global health, development, Millennium Development Goals)
4. Movements and individuals who have shaped history.

More participation of young people.

OBSTACLES: Has your organization faced any obstacles to implementing the culture of peace and nonviolence? If so, what were they?

Lack of understanding about the intrinsic and inviolable dignity of the human person - especially in relation to human rights.

The lack of holistic approach in addressing the MDGs, especially related to women, poverty, education, etc. The "one size fits all" solution is not helping especially developing societies.

The lack of understanding about the human person - and that any development, to be sustainable, should include the development of the human person as a basic ground.

PLANS: What new engagements are planned by your organization in the short, medium and long term to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence?

To be filled....
