Youth Affairs

  • The Government of Pakistan, accepting the Youth as being its most potential and valuable assets, created the sector of youth in the Ministry of Culture and Sports in 1984. The wing, after remaining part of various Ministries, was finally upgraded and given the status of full-fledged Ministry in 2005. The Ministry in the last few years mainly carried out activities like organizing workshops, seminars and exchange of youth tours to various countries, etc. At Provincial level too Youth Affairs Department were created but except for Secretary Youth, the Department has no other employee nor has it ever been allocated any budgetary support to carry out its duties. The only major contribution is the under construction Youth Development Centre at Quetta with an estimated cost of Rs.24.6 million. The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Youth Affairs. The center will go a long way in promoting, guiding and training the youth of Balochistan as the Centre has provision of basic infrastructure like debating hall, indoor games, boarding and lodging facilities etc.
