International Youth Day on August 12th focuses on the difficulties that some young people are experiencing throughout the world. International Youth Day was created by the UN to help draw awareness to a global lack of basic reading and math skills as well as childhood poverty as we strive to find solutions. A day that honours the traits of young people and that acknowledges the challenges that todayÕs fledging youth face. To support the elimination of these issues it is important that the youth is able to reach the right resources for education, wellbeing, medicine and more.
