The Leaders of Tomorrow - World Youth Skills Day
Making the world a better place begins with an individual, but it affects many lives. Remembering our youth have the power to run with the torch passed to them makes it our responsibility to provide them with the opportunities and resources needed to succeed. The youth are the future, and empowering them is the key to our ultimate success and the legacy we leave behind.
The United Nations recognizes the importance of youth empowerment and has designated July 15 as World Youth Skills Day to raise awareness of the “strategic importance of equipping young people with skills for employment, decent work, and entrepreneurship.” Every year, events take place worldwide to highlight and create spaces for young people to interact and engage with educational institutions, companies, law and policymakers, and others in leadership positions. In addition, offering activities and programs that develop problem-solving, social skills, communication skills, information literacy skills, media literacy skills, and critical thinking are highly encouraged.
We can all get involved!
