Youth development is the training of mind and body of the youth for proper integration into the society and for positive development. It involves the provision of infrastructure, creation of institutions, and processes that will enhance the development of the youth. Government has over the years strived to create a favourable condition for youth development but efforts put in place are not commensurate with the enormous problems confronting youth development. The long neglect of the youth development sector has resulted in youth restiveness, militancy, unemployment and sort of anti-social vices in the society etc and if not properly addressed may lead to national insecurity and chaos hence the need for a comprehensive plan and programmes for youth development.
