Today's Kindness #376: August 12, 2023
Each year on August 12, we observe International Youth Day (IYD). On this day, we celebrate youth across the globe to honor the promising future in today's society. In addition, the day also brings worldwide awareness to issues youth face in their lives on a daily basis.
One of the main goals of IYD is to teach youth how to make a better life for themselves. Beginning with empowerment, youth learn to become involved in society. Teaching youth how to deal with social injustice and promote peace ensures future generations will make the world a better place.
Engaging in social development with youth in your area is one way to show support for IYD. By acknowledging youth groups, you are showing support and offering encouragement for youth to share ideas and solutions to problems of today and the future. Share your support for IYD using #InternationalYouthDay and #YouthAreTheFuture on social media.
"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."
