PART ONE: General Introduction about AUSC*

The African Union Students’ Council (AUSC) is a new formed Students led Organization, created for many reasons that we based on and found that African Union has forgotten this critical and important
organ that must exist inside the African Continent to arise the Voice of All African individual Students as
we are the Future Leaders of the African Governments and Worldwide Organizations, to be either an
organ inside African Union (AU) or outside the African Union as an Nongovernmental Independent
African Students’ Organization.
     In fact, the African Union Students’ Council (AUSC) is very different from the African Union Youth
Council (AUYC) from very uncountable reasons that we sat down to publish and make official
declaration during the International Development Students’ Society (IDSS) ‘s 5th International Students
Camp took place in Zanzibar Island, Indian Ocean , from December 27th, 2015 to January 3rd, 2016 ,
where different African Students National and International level Leaders were gathered trying to find
solutions on different many challenges that this continent Africa has been facing from the period after
colonization until today and that tends to make the Africa continue to exist as in such bad reputation .
AUSC is One of the solutions we tried to fix and felt the responsible to start implementation of it, either
to be pleasant or unpleasant to the expected people to have done it before, the full involvement of
Students’ Views and their participation in the daily activities of the African Union was concluded as the
real solution for young capable Africans to take part in shaping the Better Africa We Deserve.

PART TWO: About North Africa Region**
      North Africa or Northern Africa is the northernmost region of Africa. The United Nations definition of "North Africa" includes seven countries and territories; Algeria, Egypt, Libya,Morocco, Sudan, Tunisia, and Western Sahara.[1] The countries of Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, and Libya are often collectively referred to as the Maghreb, which is the Arabic word for "sunset". Egypt lies to the northeast and encompasses part of West Asia, while Sudan is situated on the edge of the Sahel, to the south of Egypt.
Egypt is a transcontinental country because of the Sinai Peninsula, which geographically lies in Western Asia.
North Africa also includes a number of Spanish possessions (Ceuta and Melilla and tiny Spanish islets off the coast of Morocco). The Canary Islands and Madeira in the North Atlantic Ocean northwest of the African mainland are included in considerations of the region.
The distinction between North Africa and much of Sub-Saharan Africa is historically and ecologically significant because of the effective barrier created by the Sahara Desert for much of modern history. From 3500 BC, following the abrupt desertification of the Sahara due to gradual changes in the Earth's orbit, this barrier has culturally separated the North from the rest of the continent.[2] As the seafaring civilizations of the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Muslims and others facilitated communication and migration across the Mediterranean Sea, the cultures of North Africa became much more closely tied to Southwestern Asia and Europe than Sub-Saharan Africa. The Islamic influence in the area is also significant, and North Africa is a major part of the Muslim world.
Some researchers have postulated that North Africa rather than East Africa served as the exit point for the modern humans who first trekked out of the continent in the Out of Africa migration

Methods of Recruitment

Are generally categorized into:
Internal recruitment is when the organization looks to fill the vacancy from within its existing workforce.
External recruitment is when the organization looks to fill the vacancy from any suitable applicant outside the workforce.

Important Notice:
-          The AUSC National Representative can use the following guidelines when looking into methods of recruiting new AUSC Leaders within his/her country and also when starting the process of appointing  AUSC National Leaders All.
-          Put in mind that each country of the Northern Africa Region has its own additional related approaches (i.e. special norms and traditions) that can be used to attract volunteers to join in their AUSC National Leaders All.
-          Such related approaches need to be fully recognized by all the AUSC National Representatives to ensure supreme efficiency of the 1st Period January 1st 2016-2016 December 31st AUSC International Action Plan.
-          Any AUSC Northern Africa Countries National Representative needs to make sure to publish all the AUSC National Calls for his/her AUSC National Leaders team at all levels of recruitment in the local language of the represented country in addition to the Universal English Language to ensure the complete understanding of All.
-          Remember, a wise once said: “Working hard for something you don’t care about is called stress, while working hard for something you love is called passion”.
Recruiting volunteers
·        Take a moment to reflect on why you yourself are here.
·        Why are you attracted to this organization?
·        Why are you committed to the cause?
·        What does it have to offer you as a person?
·        How representative are you?
·        Try and set down in simple terms the factors that bind you to the group.

Recruiting volunteers is very much the same as recruiting donors. You need to point out to both donors and volunteers why your organization is unique and valuable. In addition, however, you will need to tell volunteers that it is also fun, rewarding, and a source of personal development.  So, in order to achieve that you need to really believe of you
r answers to the above questions to truly convince others. It is for the sake of Mama Africas Deserving future!

Screening the intake
·         You want volunteers, but you do not want just anybody. You need to think about screening your applicants, because ;
  • You're going to be assessing prospective volunteers to see if they fit the needs of AUSC - to see whether they're competent, whether they get along with people, whether they have the skills you're looking for and fit the position description. You need to assess their trustworthiness as part of the process.
  • If someone does come forward to volunteer whom you don't think is suitable, you can appoint that person in areas where he/she can best perform in. Remember, there is always room for ones who want to offer their help!
  • Offer space for discussion. They're going to be working with the other volunteers, and they want to know that they are able to trust them to do the right thing; and the other volunteers want to know the same thing about them.
  • Be prepared! You never know. All sorts of people can do wrong things. There can be no real guarantees about anybody, whether they've been screened or not; but we can guarantee that if a volunteer does go wrong and you hadn't checked him or her before they came on board then the organization could be in big trouble - with the law, with your public liability insurers, with the press, and with your donors. You may be sued, or prosecuted, or pilloried.

The ask
          The best way or recruiting people and the best way of raising funds from people are identical; have one of their friends go up to them and ask them. You will very probably have to resort to other less productive methods later, but start with this one. Organize your Board and your members to buttonhole five people each. Ask your existing volunteers to chase their friends.
Now you have learned the most important lesson about recruiting:
     You may ask "Isn't this very slow?" It may seem slow, but it gets you actual real breathing members on the ground faster than anything else. It's what works. We are so bombarded by T.V., billboards, magazines and newspapers that we often think that personal contact is ineffective, that we need more "modern methods." Ask yourself, though, how the pressure you feel when someone you know asks you to do something compares to the pressure you feel when you see a toothpaste ad on the T.V. Which makes you feel more motivated? And you're not just selling a transitory minty-fresh experience like toothpaste, you're asking people to make a meaningful commitment over the long term.
As one activist said, "I don't recruit people. I just think who might be able to help, tell them what we need, and ask them to do it. They hardly ever turn me down."
* This system of recruitment is HIGHLY recommended to be used to recruit the position of AUSC National Representative.

Wider still and wider
·         This won't be enough by itself. Word-of-mouth is by its nature limiting -- Volunteers tend to recruit people much like themselves which limit diversity. You must make an effort to get a spread of people, even at the beginning - in fact, especially at the beginning.
·         If you're putting on an event, try and recruit from the people you're selling to. If they have a good time on the day, they may want to get more closely involved. Consider holding special social events such as picnics or parties to show prospective volunteers (and your friends and family) that volunteering is fun as well as work.
·         Make your recruiting program a central part of your whole marketing and public relations program. When you have access to the media, or when you are getting your message out to the public, include a call for volunteers. When you are delivering a presentation to a service group or addressing a mob in the Domain, ask for volunteers. 

·         When you have done all you can with face-to-face soliciting consider a more closely targeted volunteer campaign.
·          First, decide where you would expect to find people who were in sympathy with your aims, and where you would go to find volunteers with the qualities you require (if these are the same place, then your job is simpler; but they are often very different).
·         Once you determine this, set about designing promotional materials such as brochures and flyers to reach these groups. The material should be consistent with your general media strategy, and should as far as possible share a common look and feel with your other promotions.
Your material should describe the needs that the program is trying to fill, in terms that people can relate to, and describe how volunteers will fill those needs. It should stress what volunteers will get out of it - not in monetary terms, but in terms of personal satisfaction and community recognition.

Too many recruiters believe that people respond only to need, and to the needs of your program at that. A typical ad might run: 
-Volunteers needed. XYZ Community Services, 555-6741.
Other groups will take this expectation a step further, -
-Volunteers desperately needed. XYZ Community Services, 555-6741.
·         Focus on a "desperate need" does not, in fact, inspire action, it just makes people think your organization is on the skids and unworthy of support.  
Getting the word out
                  The Ad
·         Once your recruitment process is in place you are now ready to target the appropriate audiences to recruit those who are truly interested in the project.
First you need to develop concise, clear-cut recruitment ads that will attract the best applicants to your program.
Ads should include 

  •  The objective of the program
  • The task
  •  The client group
  • The time required
  • The place
  • Any requirements/qualifications
  • Training/support/reward
  • Contact for response
Placing the ad
·         Next you will need to place your ads in places where people are going to see them.
  • Access potentially new types of volunteers. Many different people use the internet, but the medium is used a lot by younger and/or tertiary trained individuals - segments of the community who traditionally have lower participation in volunteering activities.
  • Improve your volunteer relations by making volunteering easy and convenient.

Other options to help get the word out include;
  • Your newsletter
  • Local newspapers volunteer listings
  • Paid ads
  • Human interest stories on your program in print or broadcast media
  • School newsletters
  • Professional association and club newsletters
  • Senior citizens clubs
  • Employee newsletters
  • Places of worship and their newsletters
  • Other "specialty" publications
  • Radio and TV public service announcements
  • Posters on community bulletin boards, at library, shops, community VEAentres, sports clubs
  • University campuses
  • "Bring a Friend" coffee morning for current volunteers
  • Open house tours
  • Brief talks at community or professional organization meetings
  • Public talks/education/demos on area of service
  • Public recognition of your volunteers
  • Stall at community events/festivals
  • Special announcements at your organization's other events
  • Your current clients, staff, board and volunteers
  • Your own web page

                   Keep in mind! Volunteers are the only AUSC Youth Leaders who generate the organizations actions. Maintain them dearly as: “A single footstep will not make a path on earth, so as a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind”.
The following tips are recommended for memorization to keep the efficient and healthy management of any AUSC National Representative
s Leaders Team All:

·         The difference Between Management And Leadership:
    Leadership and management are two notions that are often used interchangeably. However, these words actually describe two different concepts;
1. Leadership is a facet of management.
2. Difference in perspectives;
"Managers do things right, while leaders do the right.” Richard Pascale,‘Managing on the Edge’, Penguin Book, pp 65, 1990.
A leader is more emotional than a manager. "Men are governed by their emotions rather than their intelligence." John Fenton, ‘101 Ways to Boost Your Business Performance’,Mandarin Business, pp 113, 1990.
3. Subordinate As a Leader;
"Leaders must let vision, strategies, goals, and values be the guide-post for action and behaviour rather than attempting to control others." Daniel. F. Predpall, ‘Developing Quality Improvement Processes In Consulting Engineering Firms’, Journal of Management in Engineering, pp 30-31, May-June 1994.
4. Loyalty;
Groups are often more loyal to a leader than a manager. "Leaders are observant and sensitive people. They know their team and develop mutual confidence within it." John Fenton,‘101 Ways to Boost Your Business Performance’, Mandarin Business, pp 113, 1990.
5. The Leader is followed the manager rules;
"Leaders stand out by being different. They question assumption and are suspicious of tradition. They seek out the truth and make decisions based on fact, not prejudice. They have a preference for innovation.” John Fenton, ‘ 101 Ways to Boost Your Business Performance’, Mandarin Business, pp 113, 1990.

·         Team Building:
1. Delegation;
A key aspect of leadership is delegation. Unless you delegate tasks to your subordinates, your team will become inefficient and demoralised.  "I not only use all the brains I have, but all I can borrow." - Woodrow Wilson.

2. The key to holding the team together is motivation. To motivate is to: "cause (person) to act in a particular way; stimulate interest of (person in activity)." Pocket Oxford Dictionary. Oxford University Press.
 The following steps can be taken to help achieve and maintain group motivation:
-Provide opportunities for group members to become acquainted.
- Indicate the importance/value of the group.
- Make people feel they are important.
-Clarify goals.
- Identify progress.
- Acknowledge achievements.

3. Disputes;
Inevitably, disputes ranging from minor differences in opinion, to fundamental differences in ideology, will arise. The role of the team leader is to handle such disagreements constructively, ensuring that the team remains focused on achieving its goal. The leader must encourage team members to stand back from any disagreements and look at things objectively. By doing this, any differences between group members will be resolved and possible conflicts avoided.


      The most important point for a team leader to remember is that each individual needs to think that they are working with the best people - to feel proud to be part of the team. By getting people into this state of mind a leader will instil a high level of group morale; people will work harder and achieve more.
