* A vision for the youth service in Wales, and the impact of this vision on its contributions to the policy agendas.
* What the service will require to meet the needs of this vision, in terms of staff, structures and resources.
Speaking at the Education and Lifelong Learning Committee on Thursday Ms Davidson said: 'The development of this strategy will help the youth service in Wales set out its aims and ambitions for the future and how together with the Assembly Government we will achieve those goals.
'The strategy will be developed in partnership with the sector and will involve stakeholders at all levels of the service and the users of these services - young people. It is essential that the strategy is evidence based.
'We will also want to explore examples of youth service delivery across Europe and the rest of the world to see what lessons can be learned from other countries, and how these lessons could be adopted here in Wales.
'The youth service is already contributing so much through the Extending Entitlement and the Learning Pathways 14-19 agenda. This new strategy, when published, will see that contribution grow and flourish.'
The draft strategy will be developed in conjunction with the youth service before a wider consultation early in 2007.
