PENANG: More than 200,000 youth leaders nationwide will soon undergo leadership training courses to help revive some 2,000 inactive youth organisations.  

Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Hishammuddin Hussein said the ministry had identified the leaders for the training programme.  

“Presently, about 70% of our youth associations are active while 30% are inactive. 

“Our target is to make this 30% active again,” he said after meeting state youth leaders from 22 organisations here yesterday.  

Hishammuddin said a RM10mil allocation that was approved in the last Budget would be utilised to reactivate the youth bodies. 

He said the ministry would mobilise active youth organisations with numerous programmes, to become a role model to the inactive ones.  

He urged youths to emulate record breakers like N. Mohandas (who scaled Mount Everest), Datuk Azhar Mansor (sailed solo around the globe), and Abdul Malik Mydin (swam from Kuala Perlis to Langkawi).
