Youthful course

A YOUTH Parliament revival is one way One Fiji is looking at to solve problems affecting Fijian youths.

Party leader Filimoni Vosarogo said the youths constituted the majority of the country's population and issues affecting them should be given priority.

"About 18,000 school leavers with high school or tertiary qualifications vie for 2500 new jobs each year leaving about 14,500 to join the unemployed ranks," said Mr Vosarogo.

"This presents us with a very bleak future for the youths. They tend to become disenfranchised from society and government. This problem has arose because of irrelevant qualifications through 'mass-produced' education.

"There are not enough new jobs created. There is a lack of interest in holistic adolescence development in Fijian homes, lack of opportunities for development and expression of full potentialities of young people."
