5-year youth development plan framework and roadmap (2014 – 2018)

The Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Accra on 26th November, 2011, duly launched a Five Year Development Plan for the youth of the Archdiocese. The plan is focused on the development of the youth in the areas of succession and youth development using the NICYFOP approach. This Development Plan provides the base framework to enable a more detailed design for effective implementation. This is the first of its kind in the Archdiocese of Accra. The Youth Council in collaboration with the Stakeholders including the Development Office of the Archdiocesan Secretariat used 2012 and 2013 to pilot the activities and programmes that were suggested in the framework developed early 2012.
Member bodies developed their five years development plans with the vision of the Direction of Youth and Vocations Director and the Archbishop.

PURPOSE OF THE PLAN
The Youth Development Plan ensures the coordination and integration of holistic development of the youth in the areas of Growth and Maturation, Faith Formation and Skills Development. The plan will provide Critical Intervention Areas, Guidelines and Mechanisms for the achievement of the activities identified in an acceptable manner. This is particularly relevant due to the holistic nature of the programme. Succession planning will be the driving word since the youth are the future of the church

Accra Archdiocesan Catholic Youth Council AADCYC

ABOUT AADCYC:

The Accra Archdiocesan Catholic Youth Council (AADCYC) is the umbrella body of all the youth in the Catholic Archdiocese of Accra. With the multiplicity of youth groups at the Parish and Diocesan levels, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Ghana formed the Ghana National Catholic Youth Council (GHANCYC) on the National level and the Diocesan Youth Councils (DYC). Accra (then Diocesan) Archdiocesan Catholic Youth Council (AADCYC) was formed to act as an umbrella body for all the youth, both organized and not organized, coordinating their activities and being their mouth-piece at all levels.

As a laity group with a focus on Youth Apostolate and the coordination of activities of all the Catholic Youth Groups in the Catholic Archdiocese of Accra, AADCYC is constituted by the Chairpersons, Secretaries, Organizers and Chaplains of the Deanery Youth Councils and the Archdiocesan Youth Movements. It is headed by four elected executives with the option to co-opt other Council members for a two-year term. The Archdiocesan Youth Chaplain is the advisor and spiritual director of the Council. The Council is the mouthpiece of the youth and also represents them on other councils and at various fora.

There are six (6) Deanery Youth Councils namely;
• OSU
• TEMA-BATTOR
• KANESHIE
• MADINA
• MAMPROBI

3. To explore social inclusiveness and provide socially and economically acceptable skills to the youth to enhance spiritual and physical stability through the establishment of sustainable ventures (Skills development).

OUR VISION:
To develop a fully integrated and spiritually active youth, armed with the spirit and knowledge of Christ and ready to overcome life’s challenges in the process of attaining salvation.
