Youth Sector Support Programme

National Youth Council

Through YSSP, Restless Development works closely with the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MoYS) to take off Model Youth Information Centers in 5 regions of Nepal. The project intends to strengthen the capacity of both the Ministry of Youth and Sports, and other youth focused organizations in Nepal. The close association ensures National Youth Policy into practice, by encouraging other organizations to do the same.

In 2016, for the first time, Restless Development, in collaboration with Youth Initiative, successfully organised National Youth Symposium on SDGs. The aim of the event was to create a platform for youth to discuss and find a solution to different youth related issues, with the policy makers. Also, Restless Development organized a Boot Camp on Social Accountability in Action - an initiative to equip young people to monitor SDGs. In total, 22 young people from 9 different districts acquired knowledge to hold government accountability, where they expressed their commitment towards achieving SDGs especially Goal 5 in their community. Similarly, “Workshop on Youth Partnership in Sustainable Development Goals”, was conducted by Restless Development, in coordination with Youth Initiative. The consultation workshop on SDGs aimed to identify visions and priorities of the government on engaging young people to localize the SDGs. Through YSSP/Big Idea, Restless Development conducted an orientation in Dolakha, Sunsari, Dhading, Bardiya and Kavre districts to raise awareness on Sustainable Development Goals among youths.
