The Federal Youth Authority is part of the Ministry of Culture and Youth

Newly part of the Ministry of Culture and Youth, The Federal Youth Authority plays a distinct new role ensuring that all UAE ministries, decision-makers and policies are connected directly to the Voice, values and needs of the Youth. The Federal Youth Authority was established in 2016 to create and implement a National Youth Strategy that cultivates the optimal ecosystem for all Youth to succeed in productive, healthy and character-focused lives. This is no small task; with 49% of the UAE’s population under 35 and more than 60% of the MENA region under 30, the FYA aims to harness the energy, talents and ideas of the largest and most rapidly growing demographic into innovation, market opportunities, policies and culture creation for the next 50 years.
