Celebrate Youth Skills! 👦👧🏅
Happy World Youth Skills Day!
World Youth Skills Day encourages youth to acquire certain skills that will help them achieve personal success and fulfillment, showcases the many things youth are already doing, and raises awareness about the lack of representation of youth in decision-making processes.
Research shows that young people who are supported to participate in decision-making are more likely to have increased confidence and self-belief, exercise positive career choices, and have greater involvement and responsibility in the future.
Remember to celebrate all the things that youth in your life have been doing and allow them to be in the decision-making processes!
"The power of youth is the common wealth for the entire world. The faces of young people are the faces of our past, our present, and our future. No segment in the society can match with the power, idealism, enthusiasm, and courage of the young people."
