Investing in young people’s education, health and employment is vital.
Permanent Secretary for Youth and Sports Jone Maritino Nemani highlighted this, adding it will ensure better prospects for their own lives and their respective countries development.
These comments were made while opening the “Workshop on Youth Work in the Pacific: Professionalizing Youth Work” at the University of the South Pacific yesterday.
The week long workshop’s main objective is to expose participants to trends, theories and case studies on youth work and facilitate a participatory environment to share participants’ experiences on youth work.
Nemani says with this workshop they aim to develop courses on Youth Work that will be offered by USP.
He adds they also intend to gather feedback from prospective learners on the suitability of content and suitability of online delivery.
The workshop concludes on Friday and includes participants from 8 South Pacific countries including Fiji.
