Youth council establishment in Tari-Pori

A networking team from the National Youth Development Authority is currently in Hela to establish the Tari-Pori district and its five Local Level Government’s youth council executives.

Youths from the five LLGs, including Tari Urban, Hayapuga, Tagali, Tebia and Pori of Tari-Pori district have mobilised themselves and went through the registration process after the opening ceremony early this week.

The team from NYDA brought along the finalised youth council establishment guide book or toolkit that was revised recently by the NYDA team under the operations division.

It gives a clear picture of how the youth councils should be formed and the way forward once the youth council executives are appointed under the NYDA Act 2014.

The team will host an information session in the week to come leading to the youth council elections, lobbying, swearing-in and launching of the youth council executives at Paragua Lodge.

NYDA so far has established two district youth councils successfully, which are Kikori in Gulf and Talasea in West New Britain.

It is working progressively to establish more this year.
