The National Youth Policy (2011) serves as the Cayman Islands’ Government’s guiding document for the formulation of youth legislation, sub-policy, regulations and programmes. It establishes goals, objectives and strategies intended to mitigate existing and potential areas of concern with regards to youth.

Policymakers believe that the document is vital to national development, as it highlights actions needed to create, foster and sustain an evolving Caymanian culture that embraces emerging global thought while harnessing certain intrinsically Caymanian characteristics. Such steps, they feel, are necessary to produce vibrant youth who are resilient to potential negative societal obstacles, socially and politically informed, as well as environmentally aware.
