  1. Collaborative Programmes: These are significant to development works since they promote joint learning and shared interest in addressing and proffering solutions to problems from different perspectives. We collaborate with local and international organisations on youth and community development.
  2. Arts, Aquarium, Culture, Technology & Science (ACTS) Exhibition Programmes: The youth are always swimming in the pool of ignorance since there are few exhibition spaces for them to improve their knowledge and skills. We provide a permanent space for the exhibition of specimens, models and materials on ‘ACTS’, Career Choice and other thematic areas that positively influence the public, especially the youth.
  3. School Excursion Programme: We recognize the fact that Excursion Programme is an important component of youth development; therefore we put in place facilities to aid the programme for both primary and secondary schools in and around Ibadan. This enables the visiting schools to acquire out-of-school education. 
  4. Marking of the UN, WHO and National Days: International organisations such as the United Nations Organisation and World Health Organisation designate a number of “International Days” to mark important aspects of human life and history. Nigeria also has its National Days. The Days are often used for information dissemination and awareness creation about different thematic issues. We select the Days that are directly related to our thematic areas and mark them with relevant activities.
  5. Internally Inspired Programmes: These are programmes that are tailored specifically for local needs. It may be inspired by the management, members of staff and youth members/volunteers. These programmes do not have fixed dates; we organize them as the need arises. They are more flexible to changes.
  6. Monitoring and Evaluation M&E Meeting: Through this, we set the indicators of progress and success. It helps to know what we have achieved; determine efficiency and effectiveness of the strategy used and if a strategy is not working, it gives evidences of the need to change the strategy including re-allocation of resources. Its findings help to plan and implement a better programme and replicate an impactful programme. Each programme comes with its peculiar M&E Mechanism. We adopt both quantitative and qualitative methods. The methodology revolves round feedback from participants, guests, resource persons, external observers and peer reviewers or self appraisal through Structured Questionnaire, In-depth Interview, Story Telling Deliberation and Focus Group Discussion.
