Youth Groups in Tonga are for the most part very popular. The word “youth” is very vague. You technically could be thirty and still be considered a “youth.” It all comes down to if you are married or not (for the most part). Long story short, I was very impressed with some of the projects that various youth groups pursue throughout Tonga to fulfill their civic duties. I was so impressed when a Mormon youth group in Vava’u conducted a major cleanup of downtown Neiafu. They cleared out rubbish from an entire section of the Neiafu waterfront. I have never seen such amazing acts of volunteerism from so many Tongan youths. Kudos to the Mormon youth group that day. I can only hope others will be inspired to take action as well.
