BENTONG: The Youth and Sports Ministry will set up secretariats in all Felda land schemes nationwide which will act as one-stop centres for youths to get information about activities and programmes for them. 

Minister Datuk Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the secretariats would be managed by local youth leaders and the progress would be monitored by the ministry. 

He said the move would ensure that youths in the land schemes would not be left out of the ministry’s Rakan Muda programmes. 

“We have seen the programmes getting an overwhelming response with good participation from youths. 

“However, a survey conducted by Umno Youth’s community aid bureau found the programmes have not reached most of the youths in the settlements. 

“The lack of such activities has contributed to an increase in social ills among them,” he told reporters after breaking fast with villagers and youths at Felda Lurah Bilut here on Monday. 

He also presented donations and other goodies to the needy. 

Elaborating on the secretariats, Hishammuddin said that Felda youths could pick any activity based on their interests and abilities.
