Reports on the Cyprus Situation: Youth in the Service of Communities

It is a paradox that the term “youth” in the minds of a large section of the adult population is associated with an immature, irresponsible, anti-social, troublesome minority. This is unfortunately fostered by the influence of the mass media, which often for the purpose of commercial exploitation emphasise the “youth culture” and on a more derogatory note the “teen-age culture” and give prominence to the negative aspects of youth life and activities. However, the evidence and the experience of Cyprus and indeed of many other countries presents the opposite picture.
