The Voices of Youth Coalition is a youth-led platform for advocacy and action for youth participation in shaping the development agenda in Ghana. Given rising concerns over insufficient attention to critical issues affecting youth in Ghana and the lack of structures for mainstreaming youth into national policy-making, the Coalition provides an opportunity for youth to articulate their concerns and to make policy input.
Formed in January 2012 (under its original name Youth Manifesto Coalition) as the main mechanism through which the flagship Ghana Youth Manifesto was developed, the Voices of Youth Coalition comprises young people and their organisations from all ten regions of Ghana, including local groups, student associations, and youth NGOs. The Coalition also benefits from the support of a pool of active stakeholders, including UN and international development agencies, civil society organisations, and the private sector.
