I'd say it as such:
A. Problema na naming mga kabataan ngayon (iyan/iyon).
Adding "naging" makes the sentence as if it were a problem in the past. From the English sentence, I am guessing, what you want to say is "it's now our problem as youths".
B. Dapat mas alam ninyo iyan.
If you want to use the sentence in B, it should be "Kayong mga tao ANG dapat may alam ng mas mabuti"

Just seems like direct translations to me , understandable but not natural.
