  • 1.

    Finding youth that are motivated to participate in the initiative;

  • 2.

    Capturing the interest/attention of the participating youth; and

  • 3.

    Sustaining the impact of the initiative on the youth participants once their participation in the

initiative has been concluded.

These challenges vary in the order of importance, depending on age-group targeted. Having said this, the greatest challenge for any youth initiative is to have a sustained impact on participants.

Compounding the enormity of this challenge is the fact that such programs compete with each other for funding. Competition, and the time and effort required to secure funding, creates a climate where programs are niche oriented, (i.e., targeting a specific age of youth), effectively working in isolation from each other.
