Fiji has new youth group
Sunday, January 11, 2009
Update: 11:35AM FIJI has a new youth group - Youth Inc - a brainchild of some youth workers who believe there is a need to have one.
But unlike other youth groups, Youth Inc strives to assist youths overcome challenges in life such as accessing education and other facilities.
The non-governmental organisation focuses on catering the issues of youths between the ages of 12 years to 24 years through a case management system.
Its main areas of focus are youth development programs, education, training and research, healthy lifestyles and youth justice.
"Most groups do cater for the youths but they do not monitor the progress of these youths," says case manager Olive Compain.
"We would like to know where our youths are, where do they reach after we train them."
Youth Inc has life skills trainers and other skilled personnel who at some point worked with the Youth Ministry.
"We are a small team but we will cater for all youths who need our assistance," says Ms Compain.
Youth Inc is located at Suite 1, Level 1, Vanua House in Victoria Parade. Youths can contact the organisation through 3547568 or email: email@example.com
