Welcome

Welcome to the Youth Crime Watch Nigeria

Youth Crime Watch Nigeria (YCW Nigeria) is a program of
the African Centre for Citizens Orientation,
an NGO in Special Consultative status with the United Nations ECOSOCC.

Youth Crime Watch was established in 2002 when over fifty young people came
together to address the growing rates of crimes, violence and drug in the
city of Ibadan, Oyo State capital. This program has spread to other states
of the federation including but not limited to Ondo, Lagos, Ogun, Osun,
Ebonyi, Kwara, Imo, Rivers, Bayelsa, Kogi, FCT to mention but few.

The successful pilot Youth Crime Watch program was located in St. Teresa’s
College, Oke-Ado, Ibadan, where it experienced much success. In the first
year of the program’s implementation, students helped to reduce their school
crime problem. Equally important was the change in the students’ attitudes.
They were learning they could make a positive difference. Students were
reporting crime, saw positive results and enjoyed significantly improved
morale and school spirit.

Our Vision

To expand a youth-led movement to all areas locally and nationally involving all facets of the community in support of the altruistic motives of youth and to inspire a “watch out, help out” commitment resulting in a dramatic reduction in crime and violence.

Our Mission

To mobilize and equip a youth-led movement in schools and communities in partnership with public and private institutions; to create a safer environment free of crime, corruption, violence, and illicit drugs in order to foster good citizenship.

Our Values

Youth Crime Watch holds that all youth are valued individually and collectively, and subscribes to the values of good citizenship, moral integrity, pride in ourselves and our community, self-reliance, accountability, personal responsibility, and care and respect for others. YCW members assume proactive peer influence and a “watch out, help out” philosophy.

Our Objectives

1. To promote a crime-free and violence-free environment conducive for learning and living.
2. To instill positive values, foster good citizenship and build self-confidence in our young people.
3. To enable youth to become resources for preventing crime, drug use and violence in their schools and neighborhoods.
