A shift is expected within the Ministry of Youth in the next financial year. The focus would now move to youths in urban localities.

Speaking to the FijiSun during a recent visit to the North, Youth Minister Laisenia Tuitubou said they would soon shift their emphasis to assisting youths in towns and cities.

“Now we have opportunities where we are mandated to conduct informal education and we will now deviate from rural and maritime youths to urban youths after the budget announcement in July,” Mr Tuitubou said.

“For instance we will conduct trainings on how to conduct meetings, how to write Curriculum Vitae, how to make an agenda when they appear for the meetings and also educate them the on the Constitution that we have.”

He said this was the way forward because youths needed to find their place so they too could positively contribute to society.

Mr Tuitubou who was visiting youths in isolated areas of the North has called on the young adults to register their groups.

“My advice to youths is to register their groups so they can take advantage of the programmes that we offer,” he said.

During this tour, Mr Tuitubou visited the youths within the Udu district, maritime youths of Kavewa and Druadrua in Macuata and was the chief guest at the opening of the Nasolo Fitness Gym in Bua on Saturday.
