Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

An of­fi­cial of the Public Author­ity for Youth (PAY) yes­ter­day stressed its sig­nif­i­cant role in em­pow­er­ing, sharp­en­ing skills of the youth and mak­ing their time use­ful for them­selves and the Kuwaiti com­mu­nity.

The planned 150 sports, cul­tural, re­li­gious, pro­mo­tional, so­cial, artis­tic and the­atri­cal pro­grams will be held at PAY’s youth cen­ters dur­ing the first three months of next year. Night-time ac­tiv­i­ties will be free of charge.

The ac­tiv­i­ties, due to be held in all of the coun­try’s gov­er­norates, will in­volve the Min­istry of In­te­rior, the Min­istry of State for Youth Af­fairs, the Min­istry of Health, the Min­istry of Awqaf and Is­lamic Af­fairs, the Min­istry of In­for­ma­tion, the Public Author­ity for Sports (PAS) and the Na­tional Coun­cil for Cul­ture, Arts and Let­ters (NCCAL).

Dia Al-Bahr, in charge of de­vel­op­ment and train­ing at the NCCAL, said the coun­cil would take part in the ac­tiv­i­ties with sem­i­nars, po­etic soirÈes, work­shops and train­ing cour­ses.

Mean­while, Hanan Al-Zayed, in charge of tourism in the Min­istry of In­for­ma­tion, said the depart­ment would hold an ed­u­ca­tional course for pro­mot­ing in­ter­nal tourism.— KUNA
