NAYCOM Ends Strategic Planning Retreat, Gears Up For 2019

 

 

The Ministry of Youth Affairs and the National Youth Commission folded its activities for 2018 with a two-day retreat to plan for the coming year.
The retreat, held in Bo in December, drew on existing instruments—such as the National Youth Policy, the NAYCOM Strategic Plan and the proposed Youth Development Plan—to come up with a clear strategy that would inform NAYCOM’s and the youth ministry’s plans for the coming year.  
The retreat was part of NAYCOM and the Ministry of Youth’s approach to addressing issues affecting the youth sector and young people.
Speaking at the opening of ceremony, Youth Minister, Mohamed Orman Bangura said youth unemployment has led to increased dependency, high poverty levels and insecurity.
“A sizeable number of young people are unemployed or underemployed and are in the swelling ranks of the working poor,” he said.  

NAYCOM Commissioner, Ngolo Katta said the retreat was an important part of the Commission’s efforts of building synergy around the response to youth issues and for youth development generally.
He said the Commission would develop programmes in agriculture, health education, entrepreneurship, skills development and training, volunteerism; and support youth innovation.
The outcomes of the retreat and round table meeting will add to a research work the Commission will undertake to develop its new Strategic Plan for 2019-2013.
