The National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) was launched on 16th June 2009 by the Government to advance youth development through guidance, support and economic development and to develop and coordinate the implementation of an integrated youth development strategy and plan for the country. As part of its information services and communication programmes, the NYDA provides youth with information and counselling support through its various service-delivery channels, including youth advisory centres (YACs). The NYDA's YACs are walk-in centres where trained personnel provide information, counselling support, training and referral services to young people. YACs offer information and support across a wide range of issues and topics such as career guidance and entrepreneurship, job preparation and other life skills and provide referral services.
