Defining Youth

Jump to: navigation, search

--GabKon 18:10, 15 February 2011 (UTC) Hello class. My name is Gabriel Konayuma from Zambia. My job involves promoting entrepreneurship development to youths, women and people in the informal economy. I develop policies for youths in Technical and Vocational Education and Training. My definition of a youth is someone in transition from childhood to adulthood. In childhood, these youths were provided for by adults in terms of shelter, safety, education and clothing. Adults provide or at least are expected to provide for themselves shelter, employment, food and education. Youths are those that are being weaned from dependence to independence and therefore need appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes to make a successful transition to adulthood.
