Despite Tanzanian youths being the majority in the country''s labour force, they are still challenged in issues around pursuing their destiny through decent employment, access to quality education and their participation in decision making processes. These are largely the results of inadequate initiatives to support youth in search of economic empowerment opportunities especially through social entrepreneurship and formal businesses, minimal recognition in formal governance processes as well as mismatch between skills they get in schools with the job market requirements. This signals untapped youths potential. It is key for partners, stakeholders and the government to recognise the youth power and leadership as a key asset in addressing all the development challenges facing communities in the country.
