Themed ‘Building values that lead to success,’ the conference is focusing on discussing and addressing issues faced by the youths.
Opening the conference this morning, Assistant Minister for Youth and Sports Iliesa Delana says there are many challenges that youths face which affect their day lives.

Some of the topics that will be discussed at the conference include leadership development, Constitution and rights awareness, gender sensitization and inclusivity, mental health and wellbeing and Sports administration.
The conference ends on Thursday.
