Youth empowerment is a process where young people are encouraged to take charge of their lives. They do this by addressing their situation and then take action in order to improve their access to resources and transform their consciousness through their beliefs, values, and attitudes.The youth plays a great role in nation-building as they are the future of nation. Youth has the power to lead the nationtowards progress. Youth is responsible for bringing social reform within a country. So it is the need of hour to empower the youth of the society as we all know that any society’s future depends upon the resource of youth.Let me talk about some issues why the empowerment of youth is important for a nation.
Youth empowerment can help in reducing the rate of poverty to a significant level.When our youth will be skilled it will directly impact the society. With the help of his skills youth can feed his family and help his society to defeat the poverty. When our youths will be full of skills in return it will affect directly on the GDP of the nation. So, if in our society youth will be unemployed, means he/she is not working anywhere definitely it will effect our economy. So, In short terms I want to say our youth should be skill full so that we can eradicate poverty from our society.
Good education standard:
Empowerment can help youth to understand the importance of education that leads to social improvement of the country. When our youth will be empowered, He/she can understand the importance of education and work for the upliftment of this sector and in return we can get better society. We are living in a society where education sector is very poor, so it is the need of hour to empower the youth for positive changes.
Good governance: With the inculcation of youth empowerment, the youth can reject the status quo and pave a path for a better future. Our youth should have leadership skills as youth is the only one sector of the society who can take risks for the welfare of the society. So if the youth will be empowered it is simple that we can get good governance and can see changes as well as development of society. We can get examples from the history what the youth has done for betterment of society through their skills and potential, it was only possible when youth was empowered.
Empowerment ensures that youth has the necessary skill to sustain a livelihood, preventing him to adopt the path of crime. When our youth will be empowered, he will work for welfare of society and cannot go towards crimes. As nowadays we are observing that our youths are going towards various crimes like drugs, gambling, etc. Do ever we think what is the reason and why our youth is leading towards these destructive ways. It is only because our youth is doing nothing and for crime same eligibility needed that a person should not be busy with his work. So, if we want that these crimes should be stopped we have to empower the youth of the nation.
At last I want to say that we have to look that how can we empower the youth of Nation. Administration should continuously focus on this issue. Govt is going to launch National Education Policy as new policy which is commendable step towards youth empowerment and we hope that with the help of this policy our youth can be taken towards the skillfull world and with this our society will have positive changes but also remember this is only one step and much more is needed as a lot youths cannot have benefit by this policy as they have crossed this stage. It is our duty to look into this serious issue as it is the issue of our future.
