Pacific youths to lead Commonwealth Youth Caucus

Two young people from the Pacific have just been chosen by their peers to lead the Pan-Commonwealth Youth Caucus for the next four years.

This will put them at the forefront of international discussions on youth issues.

Australian Matthew Albert, 27, and Tongan Ebonie Fifita, 23, were confirmed as Chair and Vice-Chair respectively of the Pan-Commonwealth Youth Caucus, P-C-Y-C.

The Youth Caucus is made up of youth representatives from the Commonwealth Youth Programme C-Y-P Regional Youth Caucuses.

The Caucus advises international Commonwealth leaders, include prime ministers and youth ministers, on youth issues and priorities and advocate for youth empowerment through their participation in decision-making.

The leadership of Youth Caucus is rotated every four years between the four Commonwealth regions – Asia, Africa, Caribbean and the South Pacific.
