It is a youth organization that strives to see society that appreciates youth involvement in the development process of the country at all levels by initiating capacity building activities, linking youths to resource systems through advocacy programs and activities aimed at empowering the youths.

The organization was established with focus in trying to contribute to the reduction of youth delinquency, spread of HIV and AIDS, Climate change, unwanted pregnancies and early marriages, Gender inequity and inequality, drug and substance abuse, and unemployment.

The primary objective of the organization is to formulate strategies that will help youths make informed decisions by under going through psychosocial and psychosexual life skills programs.
Sport being a unifying factor will be the core avenue through which these programs will be implemented.
Global issues such as HIV/AIDS, Climate change and others call for active youth involvement in addressing them.

It is through this background that Youth Empowerment and Development through Sport will seek to explore these issues, dialog and challenge the moral foundation of the youths in Zambia, Livingstone city in particular.
We hope to equip youths with information on HIV/AIDS, drug and substance abuse, Climate change, Gender equity while empowering them with entrepreneurial skills to provide for their basic and essential needs.

The organization is recognized by the Ministry of Sport, Youth and Child Development, and the Provincial Sports Advisory Committee. The organization wishes to work with all stake holders in order to bring about development in the communities.
