Sheikh Mohammed approved the federal appointments of the 33 young men and women on Sunday.

The young men and women who were recently appointed to federal boards in the country promised to listen to the youth and help them achieve their full potential.

In an Instagram video - published by the UAE Government soon after the youths' appointment was announced by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai - some of the young directors spoke about what their new roles meant to them.

They were one in saying they would "listen to the needs of people as young as they are". Some pledged to create solutions to the youths' needs and problems - from helping them develop their skills and providing them with better higher education opportunities, to training them on how to become good citizens and productive members of society.

Sheikh Mohammed approved the federal appointments of the 33 young men and women on Sunday.

The youngest board member is an 18-year-old girl and the oldest is aged 30. The term for each member will be two to three years. They will receive the same privileges as other board members. They will receive extensive training about government work.

Congratulating the youths, the UAE Vice-President said: "You have our full support and your responsibilities start today. Youths are the pillars of the present and the creators of the future. I trust our youth to develop services, share their ideas to improve the country's position globally."
