Delegate: Ms Ochoa
3. Ms. Ochoa (Mexico), speaking as a youth delegate, said that Mexico welcomed the full incorporation of youth into the discussion of priority issues of the United Nations. At the national level, it had implemented programmes and initiatives to promote social participation, especially by young people, focused on the principal elements of the World Programme of Action for Youth to the Year 2000 and Beyond.
4. Two programmes were particularly important, that of youth delegates, which had been implemented in Mexico for the last seven years, and a programme of national and international volunteers that sought to promote a culture of solidarity while contributing to national social cohesion. In that regard, on 31 October 2011, Mexico would be sponsoring a forum to reflect on voluntary work which would examine the recommendations arising from the regional consultations carried out under the sponsorship of the United Nations Volunteers programme.
