Our commitment to truth and authenticity is unwavering in a world filled with information. We believe that every voice matters and misinformation should never hold us back.

Join us to safeguard our democracy and strengthen the bonds of global partnership. Together, we’ll shape a future where facts prevail, and the power of knowledge unites us all.

Policy Brief

Youth Participation In Democracy, Elections And Peace: The Ghanaian Context

This policy brief provides an overview of the issues surrounding youth participation in governance and electoral processes in Ghana and proposes key factors that can contribute to stability and development in this area. Ghana has a large youthful population, with 73.7% of the population falling below the age of 35 years. However, youth participa- tion in political and electoral processes remains low, with less than 2% of the 275 -member Parliament falling within the 21-35 age range. This marginalization of the youth population creates a risk for social unrest and conflict. To address this issue, the government of Ghana and other stakeholders need to implement various initiatives to enhance youth engagement, civic education, and youth representation.

Our Current Projects

Educate To Innovate With STEM

Mobile STEM Clinics For Final Year JHS Beneficiaries

As part of  Youth Bridge Foundation’s COVID-19 response efforts to ensure teaching and learning continuity (especially in Science and Mathematics), the Educate To Innovate With STEM Project Team will be embarking on community outreach with STEM Mobile Clinics that would offer hands on and practical laboratory sessions for all final year JHS students in the Project areas.

YBF envisages improved performances by the beneficiaries that would lead to their progression to the Senior High School level.

CSW67 Side-Event

Using the Tullow funded ”Educate To Innovate With STEM” Project as a case study, this side event seeks to share and emphasize how digital innovations and technologies can be advanced and positioned as a catalyst for educational progression for young girls in rural Africa. The project is currently implemented by the Youth Bridge Foundation.

Youth In Local Governance

Promoting Inclusive Participation of Youth In local Governance & Decision Making Processes

In the wake of economic hardships, strengthening partnerships at the local level becomes even more critical to ensure that we remain focused in the building of the youth development agenda.

In collaboration with the Transitions Promotion Program of the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Accra therefore, the Youth Bridge Foundation (YBF) is expanding the “Youth in Local Governance” project to the Northern and Western Regions of Ghana.

Mental Health Awareness

Mind Chess

MIND CHESS is a short film that tells the story of mental health in a neve- seen- before way!

Produced by JSE Production for the Youth Bridge Foundation, MIND CHESS tells a story of mental health, family dynamics, and the journey towards healing. The film gives us glimpses of internal struggles: overwhelming despair, desperate cries for help, and futile attempts to find solace. The short film also raise awareness of the prevalence of mental health among youth and avenues for addressing it.
