Today, August 12, 2013 marks a very special day created by the United Nations to celebrate youth worldwide for the work they do. It is International Youth Day #IYD2013 and this years theme is centered around ‘Youth Migration: Moving Development Forward.’
Youth are playing an important role in shaping the destiny of our nations and continent. They are stepping out, taking risks, taking action and creating positive change. On opportunitydesk.org, we have a special monthly feature of some outstanding young people who are exploiting opportunities and making a difference. Get inspired now, view them here.
We encourage you to Celebrate International Youth Day by continuing to make efforts to make a difference and let your voice be heard! Unleash the genius and creativity in you. The world is waiting!
Happy International #YouthDay to all! Lets all celebrate youth working tirelessly to bring positive change #IYD2013
