INTERNATIONAL YOUTH DAY

The United Nations International Youth Day was established by the UN General Assembly (A/RES/54/120), on 17th December 1999 following the endorsement of the recommendation made by the World Conference of Ministers Responsible for Youth calling for August 12 to be declared as the International Youth Day.

The day aims at bringing youth issues to the attention of the international community while celebrating the voice, and actions of the youth. It also encourages them to participate in nation-building activities as well as building their immediate communities.

As part of our efforts to encourage and empower the youths and break age-related barriers in home ownership, LSDPC recently delivered the B.O Benson Housing Estate at Ibeshe, giving opportunities to young Lagosians to become homeowners for as little as five (5) million naira.

Over the last few years, LSDPC’s transformation agenda has ensured that a majority of our new intakes are young, vibrant, and goal-oriented Nigerians within the age bracket of 23-35. This is strategically done to bring in fresh ideas, increase innovation and empower the youths, thereby positioning them as stakeholders in housing delivery across the state.

Every year, LSDPC empowers about 130 interns and Youth Corpers. They are taught technical and administrative skills that further prepare them for career progression while introducing them to societal norms and real adulthood.

In line with this year’s theme – “Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating A World for All Ages”. LSDPC will continue to work assiduously to encourage and empower youths to break every age-related barrier along their career path and nation-building attempts thereby ensuring that LSDPC, Lagos State and the rest of the world can be an enabling atmosphere for all ages to flourish.

Happy International Youth Day.
