A motion for the much anticipated National Youth Policy, which was laid in Parliament on June 30, 2016, is to be adopted by the National Assembly at its next sitting scheduled for Thursday, October 13th. This will be spearheaded by the Minister within the Ministry of Education, Hon. Nicolette Henry, GINA said.
The Adoption of this policy will allow the Ministry of Education, Department of Culture, Youth and Sport and its stakeholders/partners to carry out activities that target youth development.
According to GINA, the policy is centered on a framework of five strategic areas. These are to improve the social, emotional and cultural skills of young people; produce a productive and enterprising youth workforce; develop quality education and market oriented skills; encourage leadership, participation and representation and promote good health, security and safety.
