Youths can be very working hard in their interested fields. But, being under family pressure they cannot make such full effort on what they are working on. Youths must be motivated and encouraged to develop their skills in the interested fields. They become dedicated in their works and they enjoy the working while they do anything in their interesting fields. Youths are the future leaders of the country thus they must be investing in their careers where they are interested more than anything else.

The need for strong leadership – in both our organizations and society – has never been greater than it is now. As the challenges associated with embracing safe, climate-smart production practices and linking up with marketing opportunities in modern value chains expand, investing in the education and training of young rural people is becoming increasingly relevant. Increased market exposure to global challenges of biodiversity and poverty reduction, as well as increased participation of international and national corporations in food supply chains – this ensures that young people now and, in the future, have more chances to participate in agriculture than their parents did.

Around the same time, increased consumer competitiveness and higher quality requirement – as well as increased competition for limited natural resources, such as soil – are driving up costs – implies that these young people may need to acquire a diversity of skills and expertise that might not be readily available in rural areas. 

With these realities, it is unfortunate that the training needs of young rural people – in particular, young farmers – are not being met. Especially those necessary to create capacities to engage in efficient, profitable, and long-term activities Agriculture – has been regularly discussed in curriculum and training agendas just a few times.

At the Forum’s end, Ivana Ili, General Secretary of YMCA Europe, said, “Young people today are not the age to hang around and wait for other people to bail them out.” She and other participants advocated for the establishment of a new UN body that would give young people a permanent voice in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.

Significant trends in the use of technologies and the essence of work have profound consequences for how we train and prepare young people for the workforce. Employers are constantly searching for flexible, adaptable, constructive, innovative, and collaborative young people. In a nutshell, adolescents need soft skills, which include a wide range of abilities, personalities, and behaviors. And personal characteristics that enable them to effectively manage their environment. They must work in a collaborative environment, perform well, and accomplish their objectives.

The degree of alignment or misalignment between the skills youth learn through schooling and training and the skills employers need is referred to as the skills gap. The diversity of words in the soft skills field is a major obstacle. A series of terms are used to describe personality characteristics, abilities, and behaviors that are somewhat similar based on a wide range of academic disciplines and fields.

Take the concept of “self-control,” for example. Employers may use terminology like “self-discipline” or “self-management,” but psychiatrists use terms like “constraint,” “self-regulation,” “emotional equilibrium,” or the very opposite, “externalizing behavior.” While this variety makes tracking and appraisal challenging, it also represents the field’s dynamism and holistic existence, as well as the nuances and background of each discipline’s interaction with soft skills.

Skills growth is critical for rising business efficiency and long-term viability, as well as enhancing workers’ working conditions and employability. Young women and men need professional skills to execute practical tasks as well as key career skills such as how to read, leadership, problem-solving, and coordination in order to achieve their first job and enter the labor market.

The foundations for lifelong learning and the opportunity to respond to change are the development of fundamental skills, knowledge of workers’ rights, and an appreciation of entrepreneurship. Thus, youths must be motivated in the skill developing where their interest meets.
