International Youth Day is celebrated annually on 12 August to bring youth issues to the attention of the international community and celebrate the potential of youth as partners in today’s global society.
YAP Global Youth Voices celebrates this year with the theme: YAP GLOBAL YOUTH VOICES REFLECT & REBUILD: A CELEBRATION OF RESILIENCE.
YAP Global Youth Voices is an ongoing project to amplify youth voices. YAP chapters in Australia, Ireland, Guatemala, Sierra Leone, and the United States collaboratively work with young people, staff, and champions of YAP to create and carry out initiatives that celebrate resilience, hope, and collectively advocate for positive change and envision that change through a youth lens.
YAP Global Youth Voices also created a video bringing together young people from all around the world on this special day: https://youtu.be/t7bhU65IW9c
