A Road Map to achieving NAYCOM’s Mandate



The National Youth Commission under the supervision of the Minister of Youth Affairs Hon. Bai Mamoud Bangura and the Board of Directors has completed a two day retreat for staff at Njala University, Mokonde Campus. The thrust of the retreat was to brainstorm with staff the successes and challenges of their work in meeting the Commission's mandate. Chairman, Board of Directors Mr. Umar Farouk Sesay said it was an opportunity to exchange and make a road map that will benefit the nation at large. 
The Commissioner of NAYCOM, Mr. Anthony Koroma said the retreat created an opportunity for the Board of Directors to discuss the policy direction and also for the new Minister to share his policy direction with staff. Despite the challenges in the past he noted that the retreat was a reassuring session but admonish staff to take their work seriously.
The keynote address by the Minister of Youth Affairs Hon. Bai Maoud Bangura reassured the Commission and the entire youth sector a tenure of peace, stability and hard work. He said he will work with the entire youth sector as he rolls out the dream of President Ernest Bai Koroma for young people.

The retreat he said will explore more knowledge and best practices to strengthen the sector to move forward.  Youth problems have been thorny for many governments but with a strategic focus some of those challenges can be solved. The Minister reassured all that “we will not stop at excavating new ideas until we have an exit point to youth problems.” He concluded that among the issues the sector will tackle is giving youths the appropriate skills to meet the current job market.

Various presentation by heads of department and units followed by discussion formed the core of the retreat. A clear road map was drawn after the deliberations on how staff can improve on their work to fulfill the mandate of the Commission which is ‘Promoting Youth Potentials, Creativity and Skills for National Development.’
