The title of the midday workshop is "Model Partnerships for Youth: Education, Business and Technology Projects to further Peace, Well-being and Community Action and Resilience."

This workshop has very exciting presentations from youth with partners, talking about their work that demonstrates model programmes for youth based on partnerships between educational institutions, corporations and NGOs.

Shahid Rashid from the Sloan School of Management at Massachusetts Institute of Technology will talk about the program he works with called MEET, where students teach young people in the Middle East—Israelis and Palestinians, how to use computers to further their career; they also get he computers donated from major technology companies. This shows how educational institutions work together with business.   Luke Taylor is 20 years old and going to Stamford Business School in the fall, and he works with the Alliance for Indigenous Nations in the Amazon, in Peru and Ecuador, teaching young people how to follow lifestyles consistent with UN- defined sustainability; Paul Londrigan works with the Friendship Ambassadors Foundation, collaborating with Pace University professors, where they sponsor trips for young people to foreign countries, and form cooperations with local businesses to foster tourism, bolster the economy of the local merchants, and also teach kids about those cultures.  Michael deRossi is 17 years old, and lives in the Philippines, where he works with an NGO that among other programs, teaches kids sports in a Pitch for Peace program, that encourage peaceful relations between Moslem and Christian youth in the Philippines. Shelia Kigozi from Smith College will present the highly successful HIV/AIDS prevention program from her native Uganda, the ABC+ program that brings together the health department of the government of Uganda with community health workers, and with pharmaceutical companies.  Rachael Rosen is a thirteen year old student at New York City’s Columbia Grammar and Prep School whose band Creation is spreading their message of Peace and Tolerance, and raised money donated to the We Are Family Foundation for a new school in Mali, Africa built by Building with Books.

The moderator is Dr. Judy Kuriansky, a well-known psychologist and journalist, who hosts the Light Millennium “UN NGO profiles.” She is an NGO representative for two UN NGOs, the International Association of Applied Psychology and the World Council for Psychotherapy. She is an Adjunct Professor at Columbia University Teachers College, a columnist for the New York Daily News and China Trends Health Magazine.  Dr. Judy has developed teen AIDS prevention programs and led peace workshops around the world from India to Israel to Iran, and is being appointed to the board of the African Health Foundation. She is coordinator of the youth journalist program for the DPI/NGO conference.
