A meeting place for the youth
Today, the youth find it difficult to assert themselves collectively and
have a say in the world around them. They like to belong to a unit.
Voice of Youth, an organisation which caters exclusively to the youth,
gave a new face to their web portal by re-launching it as a trilingual
web portal, www.youthkingdom.net at the Hilton.
The team hopes to create a focal point for the youth to interact with
each other and to be able to speak up and stand up as one on issues
affecting their community or society. It is an online youth forum.
“We hope to help the youth make an impact on society,” said Voice of
Youth (VOY) CEO Senaka Dambawinne.
Youth Kingdom is a site that profiles youth organisations and offers the
language of your choice, to contact and explore any youth organisation
existing in the country. One could work with VOY or even share ideas.
“There are 10 links connected on our site. Each link will help any
person access different topics relating to youth or they could even find
employment through our site,” said VOY Programme Director Supipi
This link is the place for the youth. Youth related issues are found
here, dealing with awareness, enlightenment, education, discussion and
debate. Anyone could submit their opinions and anyone could log in to
“Most of the links are exclusively for Youth Kingdom members. We only
want the youth to engage in this network. Links such as Youth Forum and
Skills Development enables you to find the most suitable programme to
match your interest, skills and so on,” added Senaka.
Youth Kingdom also features a job bank to enable unemployed youth find a
career of their choice. It even provides career guidance for dreamers.
If any youth organisation needs funding for their projects, they would
be able to find sponsors through the site.
“We will not be charging subscription fees from any member,” pointed out
The site is sponsored by FLICT and NIVEA.
