“Developing national and international Programmes that can be addressed to all youth of our society, from all different social categories, is a high priority for the new CYC Secretarial, so as we can actually contribute in the development of the individual and the collective action of our country’s youth. These Programmes will have to be corresponding to the social circumstances and the needs of the youth,giving them the opportunity of acquiring useful knowledge and skills.”
