The Youth, i.e. those falling within the age group of 15-29 years constitutes nearly 40% of the total population of India.
This group which is the most vibrant and dynamic segment of the country’s population constitutes potentially its most valuable human resource.
To optimally tap their constructive and creative energies, the Department pursues the twin objectives of personality building and nation building, i.e. developing the personality of youth and involving them in various nation-building activities.
As most of the issues concerning young people are the functions of other Ministries/Departments, like Education, Employment & Training, Health and Family Welfare, etc.
the role of the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports is to act as a facilitator and catalytic agent.
Youth Hostels are a joint venture of Central and State Government.
