For the young

Ana Madigibuli
Wednesday, June 25, 2014

GIVING young people a place in decision-making builds a broader base of citizens' involvement and creates stronger and more inclusive communities.

This was highlighted by the Minister for Youth Commander Viliame Naupoto during the National Youth and Sport Conference at the Vodafone Arena yesterday.

Cdr Naupoto said it was for those fundamental reasons that youth groups were being registered and supported by the ministry as a platform to engage young people in development.

"Research shows that young people who are supported to participate in decision-making are more likely to have increased confidence and self-belief, exercise positive career choices and have greater involvement and responsibility in the future," Cdr Naupoto said.

"Cultural values and tradition will also feature prominently throughout the conference as our youth continue to be sensitised to society's values and customs."
