Effective management of youths is crucial in making them productive members of their communities. Youths are usually filled with bright ideas, initiatives and energy which can contribute significantly to the development of their communities, if properly harnessed. Unfortunately, these attributes are often not tapped due to the inadequate mobilization and participatory skills of the youth leaders, development officers and practitioners.
