International Youth Day 2017
Let's trigger change
How do you inspire someone else!
On Saturday the 12th of August it is International Youth Day. On this day there is globally a special attention to the contribution of young people to major global problems such as conflict prevention, lasting peace and social justice. Youth unemployment is in many countries one of the biggest problems. Especially young women, are the ones who need to fight many other problems such as child marriages, violence and unequal wages. Oxfam has various programs to solve social and political problems that cause youth unemployment. These youth programs include, for example, training, skills training and entrepreneurship courses. Role models are important for young people for inspiration and motivation. On International Youth Day, Oxfam devotes extra attention to role models.
