The Minister in the Presidency for Women, Youth and Persons with Disabilities, Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, wishes to inform the public that Cabinet approved the National Youth Development Agency (NYDA) Amendment Bill on 18 October 2020, as a discussion document to be further consulted. The Bill is available for public comment.

The NYDA Amendment Bill, amends the NYDA Act, No. 54 of 2008, which is the founding legislation of the NYDA. The amendments seek to strengthen the Agency’s operations; enhance governance; and promote visibility for access of the agency’s products and services. The mandate of the NYDA in relation to that of other key players within the youth development space is clarified. The amendments also seek to make the agency to be more focused, thus maximising the impact of its services.

All interested stakeholders, and in particular young people; youth-serving and youth-led organisations; community and faith-based organisations; government departments; municipalities; academics; business and civil society sector organisations, are invited to submit written inputs and comments.
