Youth around the globe have been showing the world how their voices matter. They have been taking action to create change. From Malala Yousafzai’s activism for female education, to Dr. Ben Barry’s desire, at age 14, to change the fashion industry’s standard of beauty, to Craig Kielburgers dream at age 13 of ending child labour.
With a global platform available through social media and the internet there are more options for youth to be a part of the change. Whether it’s volunteering at school, getting involved in ending bullying to becoming a mentor or being an ambassador for greener living, the possibilities of helping to create change are endless.
My guests today are two youth facilitators with the globally renowned social enterprise Me to We, who followed their passion in building a better tomorrow by lending their skills to empower youth to make a difference.
Some of the youth in my city showed up on a Saturday & Sunday, bright and early, to address some of the issues they felt were important and to talk about how they could make a difference in their community.
