A TOTAL of 150 young people congregated at Lomanikoro Village in Rewa to endorse their constitution and the election of their office-bearers for the next three years.

The National Youth Council of Fiji (NYCF) with affiliate bodies from the Provincial Youth Forum of the Fiji Islands (PYFFI) and the Youth Assemblies of the Fiji Islands (YAFI) met last month.

NYCF president Maciu Ratu said this was one such big gathering where all youths from Fiji gathered for their Annual General Meeting. "This is one such big gathering where all youths from Fiji meet to endorse their constitution and the election of their office-bearers for the next three years," Mr Ratu said.

He said the National Youth Council was committed to strengthen the capacity of youth development through Peace Building approach in Fiji.

The NYCF has established five priorities in their Strategic Plan towards 2013- 2015.

The plans include the effective governance and system; active and valued youth participation in nation building processes; reduce youth crime statistics through sound intervention collaboration; increase NCD intervention at youth/ adolescents stage and also to increase youth employment opportunities and livelihood initiatives.

"The meet has come at such a time when youth groups are evaluating and monitoring their work planned for 2012 and envisage a longer term plan of action as part of an engagement to elevate the approach of young people for more productivity."
