ABOUT 650 youths in the Western Division will take part in development programs offered at Youth and Sports Ministry centres this year.

Divisional youth officer West Valami Nima outlined some of the programs the ministry would host this year during the annual youth stakeholders meeting in Lautoka yesterday.

"Dynamic training will be provided by 109 participants in Nanoko, Navatusila and 106 youths in Nasomo and Vatukoula," he said.

"Mobile skills training will also be held for 88 young people from Kese Village in Yasawa and 70 participants from the tikina Korolevu-i-wai."

Mr Nima said young people would be involved in programs such as the seeds of success, and would also register newer youth groups.

"We have 65 new registrations this year," he said.

He said they were also working with provincial council offices, police and government departments to empower youths in rural and urban centres.

"Mobile and multi skills training will commence in Nacula and Waya in Yasawa later this month and we will have youth mentoring and empowerment programs lined up for young people in Nadroga," Mr Nima said.
