There has been an increasing interest of late in scholarship on young people’s active participation in civic duties such as volunteerism, taking part in the democracy process or being members of civil organisations. Youth civic engagement is an emerging area of practice and knowledge with an interest to place young people at the forefront of national development. This study then focuses on civic engagement especially youth civic engagement in Botswana. It provides an overview of the situation in youth civic engagement in Botswana. Findings suggest that young Batswana do take part in civic duties although they often come across challenges on their efforts to become active citizens. Study concludes with recommendations for improving youth civic engagement.
