The 2011-2016 Philippine Youth Development Plan (PYDP) is a product of desk reviews and series of consultations on young Filipino's issues and concerns with representatives of youth and youth serving organizations. The youth's perception on issues, (outlined in Youth Attributes, Participation and Service Providers' or YAPS), that affect them have served as important inputs in crafting the MTYDP.
The MTYDP serves as a guiding framework for youth development and empowerment. It outlines steps that will help concretize what the youth themselves desire. The plan is abroad guide for action, young Filipinos play a very important role in ensuring that the recommended policies, programs, and courses of actions are carried out.
