The Youth Compact Champions Programme For Young Emerging Leaders



The Youth Compact Champions Programme For Young Emerging Leaders

The youth compact champions programme will provide 18 months support, to 35 hard-to-reach Young Leaders (aged 18-30) who have been affected by humanitarian crisis and have experience of leading humanitarian action. These Young Leaders will:

  1. Support the design and evaluation of initiatives by the Compact to deliver on it’s 5 key actions (services, participation, capacity, resources & data).
  2. Mobilise over 1,000 young people around the world to engage in Compact initiatives, supporting over 100,000 people affected by humanitarian crisis.

The Youth Compact Champions programme builds on the collective work, initiatives and passion of the Compact members to date, and is aligned to the Compact’s guidance on working with and for young people in response to the COVID-19 emergency. The programme is currently co-coordinated by the UN Major Group for Children & Youth, ActionAid and Restless Development with support from Compact members including Norwegian Refugee Council, War Child Holland and UNFPA. ActionAid have provided initial funding for the first phase of the programme until December 2020.

As we kick start the programme from June to December 2020, working on initiatives such as The Youth Fund, disseminating Compact guidance and youth capacity building, we aim to co-design the second phase of the project from January to December 2021 with partners who want to join the programme.

If you would like to join or support the Youth Compact Champions programme, please contact Craig Dean (Restless Development) at

The Youth Fund is a new fund to support youth action around the world, where the decisions on which projects are funded are made by young people themselves.

The fund is supported by the UN Major Group for Children and Youth, ActionAid Denmark, Restless Development and developed in collaboration with UNFPA.

This first call for applications will focus on supporting actions taken by registered youth-led organisations tackling the impacts of COVID-19 as part of the Compact for Young People in Humanitarian Action’s Youth Compact Champions Programme.

JAMB Regularization For Candidates Admitted Into Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Distance Learning Undergraduate Programmes

The Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Distance Learning Centre (DLC) management has published the procedure for admitted candidates to regularize their admission with the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).

JAMB Regularization for Candidates Admitted  into ABU Distance Learning Programmes

All new students are expected to visit the nearest JAMB state office in their state of domicile with their relevant documents of admission to regularize their admissions. This should be done unfailingly immediately after the conclusion of screening and admission before the commencement of their first examination in the Centre.

It should be noted that the above procedure for the regularization can only be done in a state office of JAMB and not in a JAMB CBT accredited Centre. The JAMB presently charged N3,500 for the service. This is without prejudice to any adjustments that may be made by JAMB in the future.

The regularization should be done on the Distance Learning Program platform on the JAMB portal only not on part-time or sandwich platform.

In conclusion of the above procedure and acquisition of a JAMB regularization number, the evidence as provided by JAMB should be submitted to the liaison offices or sent to the Secretary’s office at the Distance Learning Centre’s Headquarters for further processing.
