Ordered by Act 503 of 2004
CAJP was created to bring young people closer, to engage in constructive dialogue on public policy and to be an integral part of their development as leaders and professionals. This Act defines youth public policy as “all action aimed at achieving and realizing the social, educational, and professional goals and objectives of young people”, and promoting their participation. It also proposes to “identify those problems, needs and interests of our young people”, promote government efforts in favor of youth and learn about initiatives in their favor from the private sector.
The Summit is an instrument that enables young people to exchange ideas with the leaders of all the Agencies, Government Secretaries, Legislators and with the Governor, to channel recommendations and suggestions. Likewise, it provides the Government and the private sector with the opportunity to promote youth-related programs and initiatives.
Every year, hundreds of young people in Puerto Rico participate, with the purpose of promoting their entrepreneurial and analytical thinking and participating in debates that help the development of the Island and the quality of life of young people. Some of the topics discussed are public policy, environment, entrepreneurship, cooperativism and education.
