La Política Nacional de Juventud pretende colaborar para que las y los jóvenes logren la construcción de identidad y de autonomía al mejorar la integración social y la participación ciudadana de las nuevas generaciones y fomentar su cohesión social y su sentido de pertenencia. En el corto plazo, por su parte, el Plan de Acción se propone jerarquizar las políticas de juventud en la agenda pública, mejorar las percepciones sociales sobre las y los jóvenes (acotando los estigmas y los estereotipos vigentes) y modernizar la gestión pública en este campo con la articulación de los esfuerzos institucionales existentes.

The National Youth Policy aims to assist young people in constructing their identity and autonomy, to improve social integration and civic participation of the younger generation and to promote social cohesion and a sense of belonging. In the short term, the Action Plan proposes to prioritize youth policies on the public agenda, to improve social perceptions of young people (eliminating stereotypes and stigma) and to modernize public administration in this field with the coordination of existing institutional efforts.
