Description

Como política social para el grupo de 12 a 30 años, la Política Nacional de Juventud se articula con el resto de las políticas sociales a través del Gabinete Social y las Mesas Sectoriales y se orienta al logro de las metas de la Estrategia de Reducción de la Pobreza (ERP) y los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio (ODM) comprometidos por el país. Se trata de una política social flexible, basada en derechos humanos, que parte de la visión al año 2030 de las/os jóvenes de Honduras, como titulares de derechos en el aquí y ahora del país. Concibe a las/os jóvenes desde sus diversidades, como actores estratégicos del desarrollo nacional, con plena participación en los niveles locales municipales y nacionales, integrando tanto a los organismos de gobierno como de la sociedad civil en un Sistema Nacional de Juventud.

The National Youth Policy aimed at the group aged 12-30 years of age, ties in with other social policies through the Social Cabinet and the sectoral committees and is aimed at achieving the goals of the Strategy to Reduce (PRSP) and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), to which the country is committed. It is a flexible social policy based on human rights, which form part of Honduras' 2030 vision of youth. Youths are treated as stakeholders and strategic actors in the here and now of the country and its national development, while they are encouraged to participate fully on the local, municipal and national levels, integrating both government agencies and civil society through a National System of Youth.
