The public will have the opportunity to be heard at the policy-making level as the Division of Sport and Youth Affairs (DSYA) is interested in obtaining the views and ideas of youth, 10-35 years, to assist in finalising the Tobago Youth Empowerment Strategy (YES) 2021-2025.
The consultation-themed “Inclusion Takes Heart”, encourages young persons to take a collaborative approach with the DSYA. The public is encouraged to share their views and ideas on matters impacting youth development and empowerment through an online survey and feedback form. Online discussions and focus groups will also take place across the island with specific target audience.
The aim of the consultations on is to engage youth and to solicit their input regarding key areas that they would like to address in the YES. Some of these key areas include facilitating the equitable distribution of resources for youth, prioritizing youth economic participation and empowerment and the harnessing of youth social and intellectual capital.
The Draft YES policy document can be found at www.thasportandyouth.com for reading and download. Interested persons can fill out the survey at https://forms.gle/MvwWgE3Nwf8q8H949 or email email@example.com for more information.
