YOUTH groups from various parts of Labasa will have more knowledge and skills of becoming good future leaders after they underwent a three-day leadership and youth organisation management training which ended yesterday.

The training, which empowers youths to be more active and participate in community development, was facilitated by the Ministry of Youth and Sports and held at the ministry's boardroom in Labasa.

Youth administrator North Shalendra Vishwa said the training was a capacity building for youths.

"After the training, youths will be able to improve on their leadership qualities, they will be able to solve problems creatively and will be able to conduct effective meetings, project planning and management and communication skills," he said.

Mr Vishwa said youths would be able to build on their self-esteem.

"We believe that with what they have learnt from the training, it will build them to become a good leader who can manage their youth groups and other organisations better and will be able to stand up and speak out on behalf of their youth groups," he said.

"This is another way we can help them become a more responsible and good citizen of our country."

Mr Vishwa encouraged more youths around the North to join youth groups in their areas.

"This is a good way for youths to meet up and learn from each other," he said.
