The two-month course will be offered to young people aged 16-25, particularly those who can read both Shan and Burmese.
The Tai Youth Network is opening a training course in Lashio, northern Shan State, focused on youth capacity building.
The program will begin on May 20 and conclude on July 20 and will include 20 participants, many of whom will be coming from Hsipaw and Kesi townships, according to course organizer Sai Naw Seng.
“We announced this training course two to three days [ago],” he told SHAN. “I think more people will come to apply for it.”
Youth interested in the program are recommended to be between 16 and 35 years old and be able to read both Shan and Burmese languages.
The course will explore leadership, problem solving, computer skills, democratic federalism, and issues surrounding peace, the environment, land, human rights, gender equality and humanitarian outreach.
