Young people are not homogenous group since they are diverse and have diverse needs. In the same manner, there should be equally varied and unique interventions designed to address those needs. Therefore it is crucial; that mainstream policies and programs across all different sectors should work synergically, if needs of young people are to be affectively addressed.

National youth policy recognizes challenges facing youth from diverse backgrounds. It also acknowledges that problems experiences by individual categories of targeted youth groups are unique and multifaceted and require involvement of various service provider across different sectors. Therefore, it would be important to identify the broad categories of targeted youth groups requiring specialized and tailored interventions.
