“EMPOWER 2012 is ROTA’s 4th Youth Conference on Leadership, Service Learning and Global Citizenship”.

19th to 21st April 2012

Venue: La Cigale, Doha


EMPOWER Youth Conference is part of a series of 3 youth development initiatives currently led by ROTA Youth program. This three day youth led conference seeks to energize, mobilize and inspire leadership and civic responsibility among Qatar’s youth. By youth we mean anyone between the age of 14 to 24 years.

EMPOWER Youth Conference is the first of its kind in seeking to create a platform for young people in Qatar to be empowered and equipped for leadership and to express a concerted voice in addressing local and global issues within a practical learning context. Please visit the program section for an overview of what is involved.

In planning this conference, ROTA has modeled its belief in positive youth development approach by proactively involving a team of 25 youth from schools and universities across Qatar who have been integral to the planning and implementation of the conference. Drawing from the success of their participating in last year’s conference, these youth have be trained to be visible face of this year’s conference as they feature as the MCs, facilitators, off site project coordinators and guides.
