The SYRC programme will be implemented starting in May 2022.

He said the Ministry sees the biggest asset is the graduate youth group as a catalyst for human capital that brings Sabah forward and success. 

“My Ministry under the Sabah Youth Council will establish the Secretariat of the Peninsular Student Council to assist in the welfare and social activities of Sabah students. This secretariat is also a platform for students to communicate with the Sabah State Government in bringing the voice of Sabah students,” he said. 





The Ministry is scheduled to organise a Special Festival for Sabah Youth in June 2022 with the theme “Excellent Youth”. The Ministry announced that this programme will involve all 12 ministries and youth development agencies so that no youth is left behind. 

He said according to the Malaysian Youth Policy, there are eight groups of youths in Malaysia, namely school -going youths, higher education youths, working youths, youth groups, mass youths, international Malaysian youths, minority and marginalised youths and at-risk youths. 

“My Ministry took an approach to these youth groups by focusing on 12 domains according to the Sabah model in the Sabah Youth Policy book. 

“My ministry will involve 12 ministries to assist the development of Sabah’s youth through programmes that will be implemented across agencies. The benefits will be comprehensive, and no youth will be left out in the youth carnival,” he said.

The Ministry through the Sabah Sports Board agency is now prioritising the work of repairing existing facilities that have become obsolete as well as planning new developments to improve the quality and support of existing facilities.

Currently, the Sabah Sports Board oversees 16 sports complexes throughout Sabah and all these sports complexes provide football field facilities and synthetic races. 

The Ministry through the Sabah Sports Board agency will upgrade and further diversify sports facilities that do not yet exist in stages depending on the financial resources available in the future.



To ensure that the people of each district in Sabah benefit from the sports facilities provided by the Government, the Ministry through the Sabah Sports Board agency is also planning the construction of new sports complexes in districts that are not yet available. 

Currently, three new sports complexes are being built through Sabah state government funding, namely; Tongod Sports Complex, Tuaran Sports Complex and Kota Marudu Sports Complex.

The Ministry through the Sabah Sports Board has been assigned to implement Traditional Sports in conjunction with the Sabah State Kaamatan Festival in 2022.

The Sabah Sports Board since 1988 has been entrusted to assume the responsibility as the Chairman of the Traditional Games Competition Committee in conjunction with the Sabah State Kaamatan Festival.

Apart from organising the Traditional Games at the State level, the Sabah Sports Board is also given the same responsibility in the Launch of the Kaamatan Festival in the districts selected by the State Government or the State Level Kaamatan Festival Main Committee.

The Traditional Games is an annual event in conjunction with the Sabah State Kaamatan Festival. Armed with the experience, knowledge and skills as well as the trust and confidence of the state government over the years, the Sabah Sports Board is always ready if given the trust and responsibility to implement Traditional Games in the future.

Among the annual Traditional Games competition are;

Ellron also said that the Ministry sees the issue of high -level technical skills or Technical Vo­cational Educations and Training (TVET) as a policy issue that is a constraint on the workforce among youths. 

“Thus, my Ministry together with the Sabah Department of Youth and Sports (Federal) has held discussions on this matter. 

“Facts on this matter, the Ministry of Youth and Sports Malaysia has established the Malaysian Youth Skills Institute in Sabah. Meanwhile, Skills Training Centres such as Pusat Giat Mara, Polytechnic, Industrial Training Institute and Malaysian Skills Institute have been established in Sabah to create technical and industrial skills opportunities for Sabah youth. 

“However, discussions with the Ministry of Education on this matter will be refined so that this focus does not overlap with other agencies. The Ministry will continue to implement cross -agency programs for this purpose,” he said.
