The Youth develops the contents by themselves, including all teaching materials. Besides Posters, handouts they also use pantomime, songs written by themselves, games, self made videos and short movies with clay animation, puppet shows and to deepen the knowledge an own radio show in 3 languages.
With good preparation and networking with other organisations working in relevant fields, the team put together a programme to pass on knowledge in a fun way. Meanwhile also the environment is on their curriculum, for example composting and using effective microorganisms (EM).
They often invite guest speakers, experts in certain fields who present specific topics, among others the Thai traffic police and general police.
