Ghana’s premier media and research hub dedicated to the country’s diplomatic and international affairs, Diplomatic Call, is set to roll out the Young Diplomats of Ghana (YDG) initiative; a nonprofit networking avenue which would seek to advance the development of a new generation of aspiring leaders and diplomats in Ghana, and to build their advocacy experience.
The initiative is a CSR response to several calls by major stakeholders in Ghana’s diplomatic and international affairs on Diplomatic Call to extend its scope of operation by engaging and educating young people on the major essence of modern day diplomacy.
In line with this, Diplomatic Call is ready to engage young people; 18 years and above and not older than 30 years to be selected as DELEGATES of YDG. Selected delegates would undergo practical training in diplomacy and its tenets, to develop their knowledge in areas of “Diplomacy, International Affairs and Policy Advocacy.
Delegates would also be involved in expert research through partnership with private and civil society organizations to support the decision making process in Ghana with strategic analysis and policy insights.
Further, delegates would work as SDG Ambassadors to lead advocacy programs for interventions and policies which reflects a commitment to the implementation and achievement of the Global Goals in Ghana.
