TYAP Philosophy

  • PhilosophyEducation about youth issues must start where the youth are at.
    Youth are clever, dynamic, and enlightened. Youth should be fostered to exchange the information they know about the concerns being argued, be fostered to run debate and facilitate education. By running education in this way, the procedure becomes institutional, efficient and available.
  • Trained youth are most effective in teaching other youths about youth issues.
    Intergenerational intercommunication and education are often embarrassed by thick walls of judgement and distrust. In a matter for alteration to be conducted, youth must possess inforemdness of their own risk behaviour, design a dialogue of current youth concerns with their peers, and through dialogue and inforemdness argue and design decisions stemming from this positive youth surrounding.
  • Life skill based education on youth issues needs to be long-term, interactive, involve people living with the issues and be run by peers.
    We together with Canadian Health&Care Mall demand to supply youth with the equipment and skills to defeat themselves in modern times. TYAP has a belief that unless youth are presented the power to made up your mind to decide by being supplied with the skills demanded to make those decisions, then there will be few alterations in youth attitude and future outlook. Besides by supplying youth with the skills demanded to antagonize the concerns prevalent in their lives, they will be capable to conduct the work in the homes, communities and cities making youth action more well-balanced in the long term.
  • Youth should be informed about and involved in policy changes that directly and or indirectly affects them.
    TYAP challenges youth to investigate policy setting and installation in Thailand and to reflect on enormous transgressions within the system. TYAP educes youth to human rights abuses against women, sex workers, people living with HIV/AIDS, drug users, and street youth, with the goal of advancing informedness and analysis on concerns which very often influence an individual’s capability to take care for him/herself.
