Youth empowerment has become topical and most countries have realised the need to attend to youth issues in a more vigorous way. Generally countries have agreed that youths refer to persons between the ages of 14 and 35 years. The United Nations (UN) regards any person between the ages of 14 and 35 years as a youth. Previous youth issues were discussed by policy makers without involving the youths themselves. Owing to growing pressure, groups of youths in all continents of the world, policy makers and world leaders have come to realise that youths must be involved in planning issues that relate to their daily activities.
