Youth Crime Watch of Nigeria (an NGO in Special Consultative status with United Nations Economic and Social Council) is a youth-led movement committed to create a crime-free, drug-free and violence-free environment conducive for learning and living. Youth Crime Watch of Nigeria is a positive gang that change the mood of our schools and communities.
The increasing wave of crime in the last decade due to the continuous downturn in the Nation’s economy and the moral decadence has called for a very urgent need to stem the negative trend. During this period a lot of innocent lives were lost during armed robbery, burglary or rape, due to the spiraling incidences of robbery associated with rape of the victims.
Thus many hypertensive cases were recorded and some sexually transmitted diseases are also transferred during the process. On the other hand the psychological trauma that is inherited by the victims gives a lot of worry to both the victims and their immediate families. Since cultism is spreading unabated, the use of drugs in schools (at all levels) due to its close usage by cultists has also sky rocketed. Many have even contacted the killer disease through the use of previously used sharp objects by druggists.
The apparent need for a training/enlightenment of youth who are ready instruments in the hand of politicians and our supposed leaders in different communities cannot however be over emphasized. The joblessness of youths of differ ages and/or the restlessness of these cadre of the nations population has resulted according to our study in the indiscriminate use of aid invention of means of livelihood that are shameful to say the least.
All of these above and some others like it are what has propelled the pioneers of Youth Crime Watch of Nigeria to think of possibilities of ensuring that the negative trends are stemmed so that the present youths indeed becomes the real hope of the Nation positively.
Youth Crime Watch of Nigeria was established on 7th of October 2002 due to crime prevalent in schools and communities, improper dressing that leads to raping, dangerous driving among the youths, militancy, kidnapping and hostage taking in the Niger-Delta and cycle of revenge violence in all entire Federation. The first successful school program of the Youth Crime Watch started at St. Teresa’s College, Oke – Ado, Ibadan. YCW Nigeria has spread to over 10 states in Nigeria including but not limited to Oyo, Lagos, Ondo, Ekiti, Osun, Ebonyi, Delta, Rivers, Ogun, Kwara, and Federal Capital Territory.
At the Resumed Session of the United Nations Committee on NGOs held in New York in May 2010, the organized was granted a special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council and a member of the United Nations Global Compact.
