The Department of Youth Affairs and Sports (DYAS) recently completed a series of sessions with key stakeholders from a variety of youth focused agencies and organisations through which it obtained input on the Virgin Islands National Youth Policy.

The meetings followed the April 2015 launch of the policy which seeks to ensure the Territory’s youth have access to quality sports and recreational activities as an integral part of their development and well-being. The proposed policy will also provide access to quality programmes and services which cater to their physical, mental and emotional wellness.

Stakeholders attending the sessions were able to contribute to the design of an operational plan for the Virgin Islands National Youth Policy and also inform the strategic planning and planning implementation priorities of the department.
