This Policy attempts to respond to youth concerns in two ways. On one hand some of the recommended programs are direct responses to the problems affecting youth in the FSM. On the other hand some of the programs are creative ways of improving their self-esteem so they can be motivated to plan better for their future and achieve their goals in life.

This Policy therefore offers a mix of recommended programs for addressing the needs of young men and women. These programs are identified in Section 6 of this document. It is anticipated that these programs will encourage all young people to take responsibility for realizing their full potential. Through these programs our young people will be more aware of the many challenges that are likely to have a negative impact on their livelihood and take sensible steps to dealing with these challenges.

Also built into the Policy are various mechanisms for recognizing the unique contributions young people make to the development of their society.
