The youth population is the backbone of any country. Youth in a country is a viable and potential human resource not only in population structure but also in social structure. May the countries in Asia be on the list of developing countries, but the countries of the region have an increasing demographic share of the youth in the general population. In Bangladesh, the youth population occupies almost 40% of the total population. However, they cannot play significant roles in the country’s socioeconomic development and change due to the many problems it faces and the lack of support from the government. Even though the government has established plans and programs for youth welfare, they face many economic and cultural obstacles that stop them from moving forward. This research will not only present the problems that the young generation face in Bangladesh but also make suggestions to improve their future.
