To enhance the effectiveness of the youth committee, it is imperative to establish clear goals that will guide their efforts. One key initiative involves training and mobilizing youth by actively engaging them in community workers' clubs and encouraging their participation in the workplace's youth committee through the Youth for Social Service Programme. This multifaceted approach not only fosters a sense of community among the youth but also empowers them to contribute meaningfully to social causes. Additionally, a crucial aspect of strengthening the youth committee's impact is to conduct regular reviews of the youth programs implemented during this period. This evaluation will provide valuable insights into areas of improvement and success. Looking forward, organizing a broader youth labor conference becomes essential. This conference will serve as a platform for analyzing the youth's mentality, aspirations, and current conditions, thereby shaping the future strategy of the committee to align more closely with the needs and desires of the youth community.
