National Consultation on the Federal Youth Policy in final stages
March 24, 2017

The Department of Youth Empowerment is in the final stages of finalizing plans for a national consultation.

The National Consultation on the Federal Youth Policy 2017-2022 will be held on Tuesday 28th March at the St. Kitts Marriot Resort where over 200 individuals of the public sector and civil society are expected to give a final review of the Draft Federal Youth Policy.

Special Advisor to the Minister of Youth Vernon Connor says the policy document will be a game changer here in the federation.

He noted that the policy received a great endorsement from officials.


UNESCO provided financial support for the Youth Policy Initiative, while the Commonwealth facilitated the six month attachment of youth expert, Dwynette Eversley, who guided the work of the Youth Policy Steering Committee and related policy activities.

Support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is also expected to provide assistance in bringing the finalization process to a close.
