YaR Interest Groups

YaR Interest Groups

YaR Interest Groups represent the essential dimensions of YaR Ministry. A need was strongly felt that we at YaR Forum need to grow more in awareness and depth with regard to the many dimensions of working with the Young at Risk. That would help towards achieving the objectives of YaR Forum.

With this purpose in mind different aspects of YaR Mission were listed and persons who have experience and interest in those aspects opted to study and contribute as groups. Several themes were made into groups with each theme and group having leaders. The mail expectations from the theme groups were:
1. Introduce and lead discussions on the YaR Interest themes in the YaR Forum Google Groups so that more and more awareness is created about it in the YaR Fraternity.
2. Prepare well prepared PowerPoint presentations on the themes/dimensions and share them with the YaR Forum members.
3. Prepare manuals on the themes that would give good useful about the different dimensions. The information could include all that a YaR center and its personnel need to know about it, the international standards, National standards, Legal Systems, Policies, the situations regarding that dimension in the country, the national and international situation on the matter, Practices and models in the YaR centers and other organizations regarding this dimension, the attitude of YaR regarding that as according to its statutes,child policy etc).
