The Child and Youth Policy Programme aims to create more opportunities and equal opportunities for children and young people in education and employment, considering their age, and to advance active citizenship, participation and social inclusion among all children and young people.

The programme focuses on children and young people as citizens, members of groups, members of families and individuals.

The programme is founded on the value base of the Youth Act as well as the nature of the Youth Act as a population act, which expands the goal-setting to cover generation policy.
