Youth Policy

To empower young people to achieve their full potential and prosper in today’s society, we need quality youth policy.

Youth policy should aim to fullfil the rights of all young people regardless of their background, to provide support, resources and opportunities in all areas of their lives. 

Young voices are key to ensuring this becomes a reality and it is crucial that young people and youth organisations are involved at all stages of policy-making - from problem identification to, development, implementation and evaluation of policies.
