The newly established Council on youth Affairs under the Patriarch will help young people to find work, told reporters the President of the Council Inal Ardzinba.

«We have planned a program of «Mentoring», which focuses on the employment and support of young people. We have respected public figures, businessmen, who will oversee the respective groups of young people,» he said.

He also explained that the Council is a public organization which primarily focuses «on the broad masses», and not «the youth of the Church and Church structures»: those people, «who, perhaps, unresolved for the moment the questions, some other topics, which, they say, can’t or are ashamed to ask the Church.»

While Ardzinba said whether the new Council is part of the structure of the ROC. «We have an interfaith Council. Why the Patriarch? We just recognize the special role of Orthodoxy and his Holiness in our lives. But our advice is not Orthodox», — he assured journalists.
