Beneficiaries, aged 10 to 30 years, 50% boys and 50% girls, in and out of school respectively employment, are selected first and foremost on their interest and commitment to be part of the project and in consonance with their various community structures. They are identified based on their vulnerability, underprivileged and social profile. YOCADS includes youth who do not have other opportunities to be part in a club or regular training, but focus on the ones that wouldn’t get any support or have materials to play with or have a regular group training them without this project.

The socio-economic background can be summarised as deplorable and underprivileged with a lack of opportunities for education, learning technical skills and deficient support network.
