Youth to Benefit from National Youth Development Index Survey and Young Development Fellows Programmes
Mr. Muhammad Usman Dar, Special Assistant to the Prime
Minister on Youth Affairs called on Makhdum Khusro Bakhtyar, Federal Minister for
Planning, Development & Reform to discuss National Youth Development Index
Survey, and Young Development Fellows (YDF) programmes.
National Youth Development Index Survey would be a first-ever district-level national
survey to capture data on youth development in different provinces/regions of the
country. It was decided in the meeting that Government would launch National Youth
Development Index Survey to gauge real development needs of youth in different
areas of Pakistan. It would not only help in targeted interventions for the socio-
economic development of youth but would also promote a culture of spending on youth
development among the provinces.
Young Development Fellows (YDF) Program is a remarkable initiative of Ministry of Planning,
Development & Reform to ensure active participation of young professionals in
national development by creating a pool of young development fellows. It hires 40 young
professionals annually for a period of one year to impart them on-the–job training in running
Government business. It was also agreed in the meeting that Government would work on
scaling up the said programme to accommodate more young development fellows through it
Mr. Muhammad Usman Dar thanked Makhdum Khusro Bakhtyar for his support in
furthering the cause of youth development in country through various youth-focused
