NEWLY-elected executives of the Macuata Provincial Youth Council plan to visit all youths in villages and rural settlements in the province soon.

Speaking on behalf of the executives, vice-president Mavela Liga yesterday said they also planned to initiate training on capacity-building and leadership for the youths.

The council conducted its AGM on Friday in Labasa at which the election of the executives was held.

"We have elected the new office bearers and we have also enforced changes. Among these is the amendment of the council's constitution," Mr Liga said.

"For the visitation, our focus is to bring our youths together and inform them about the change in leadership and encourage them to support the council.

"We also want to encourage youths to make a stand against poverty and make use of available resources for sources of income."

Mr Liga said the executives would lead the council for three years.
