The research captures youth engagement model with youth taking the lead.It will also provide a comprehensive analysis of aspirations of youth in relation to existing realities for which data were collected through an online survey and focus group discussions (FGD). Additionally, it will capture the findings from the nine-day residential camp the members of Youth Initiative underwent in January 2020, to review the National Youth Policy (NYP) of 2011.

An analysis of some more than 1,200 youth perspectives, the research captures the youth engagement model in which youth takes the lead in different stages of consultation to review the NYP. “We are actually asked to facilitate the FGD for the collection of data among the various kinds of youth…that are there in our country. So, the mock FGD, as well as the training and all, definitely helped me to be able to prepare myself and be able to do it in real life rather than just knowing how to do it,” said Kinley Dolma Dorji.

The study showed that of the 1090 youths, only 37.24 per cent were aware of the NYP.
