Unleash the Potential of The Youth
Imran Khan and his team from PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) promised us:
PTI’s youth policy will provide the youth the three Es: Education, Employment and Engagement. Our policy will ensure that we create a group of educated, skilled young people that are invested in making Pakistan a great nation.
Pakistan is experiencing a youth bulge, with over 63% of the population under age 25. Out of these, 43 million are currently between ages 15-24. However, this population faces constraints of poor education and skills. The UNESCO Institute for Statistics estimated in 2016 that around 25 percent of the Pakistani youth was illiterate with no vocational or technical skill.
We will double the size of existing skill development & vocational training programmes.
We will launch a national programme to provide practical training to graduates in the public & private organisations.
We will establish a liaison office under the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to promote foreign placement of young Pakistani talent.
We will invest in the youth members of local government bodies by training them and empowering them to conduct village-level activities for other young people.
Launch a Youth in Politics and Community Challenge Fund to engage the youth in national & provincial development by giving small grants to young people for solving pressing problems of their communities
We will revitalise the youth Parliament and create programmes in which young people can intern with parliamentarians as staffers or researchers.
