Upcoming Events

  • International Youth Day seeks to raise awareness to the cultural and legal issues faced by youth throughout the world.
  • The theme of International Youth Day in 2015 was Youth Civic Engagement.
  • Youth activist, Malala Yousafzal, is the youngest Nobel Laureate. Yousafzal advocates for the rights of all youth seeking an education, regardless of gender, religion and creed.
  • Of the 1.8 billion youth in the world today, half survive on less than $2 per day.
Young people should be at the forefront of global change and innovation. Empowered, they can be key agents for development and peace. If, however, they are left on society's margins, all of us will be impoverished. Let us ensure that all young people have every opportunity to participate fully in the lives of their societies. - Kofi Annan, Secretary-General of the United Nations

  • Participate in official youth celebrations within your city. You can also volunteer to support such initiatives.
  • Encourage confidence building activities for the youth in your life. This can be done by having youth participate in sports, drama clubs, debate clubs and music bands.
  • Encourage youth to learn about sustainability and engage in recycling. After all the garbage created today will also be inherited by youth.
  • Empower the young ones in your life with books such as Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul and The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.
  • Watch movies that inspire youth to make a positive impact in the world.
