Role of Stakeholders at Cape Coast PPAG Youth Centre: Deficiencies and Implications.


KG Badu

Abstract

The study investigated whether the activities or the roles performed by the various stakeholders at the Cape Coast Planned Parenthood Association of Ghana (PPAG) youth centre impacted positively on the youth behaviour and performance at the centre. The sample comprised 22 teachers, 50 parents and 3 social welfare workers who were supposed to work with the centre. Data was collected with questionnaire and analysed with percentages. The results indicated that apart from the seemingly impressive recommendation role of stakeholders, all the other roles, namely, information, visitation, referral and follow-ups were found to be weak and ineffective and seemed to have little impact on the youth and the programme in general. It is recommended among others that long term educational campaign programmes should be mounted for all stakeholders on a regular and sustainable basis to achieve this desired goal.

Key Words: stakeholders, youth, deficiency, quality care delivery, education.
