Young people’s talents and gifts remain hidden until it is discovered and nurtured.

Citizenship means being a member of and supporting one’s community and country. Every country citizen has certain freedoms which are declared in the Bill of Rights. In addition to these privileges, a citizen has an obligation to be informed, law abiding, and uphold basic democratic principles such as tolerance and civic responsibility. Voting, conserving natural resources, and taking care of oneself are all part of citizenship. In addition, citizens often participate in local community projects dedicated to the common good.
In response to concerns about our youths ethical development, Youth Care Projects is commencing character education programs of which citizenship is a part. Most educators agree that helping children understand their rights and obligations as a Nigerian citizen needs to be reinforced in all grades.
