International Youth Day serves to raise awareness of those priority areas which include education, employment, hunger and poverty, health, drug abuse, and juvenile delinquency among others.
The theme of International Youth Day 2021, “Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health” with the aim of highlighting that the success of such a global effort will not be achieved without the meaningful participation of young people.
On a local level, at Highland Shores CAS, we are proud to support a Youth Advisory Committee of the Board. These very active youth meet monthly to discuss and advocate for matters of importance to them and other children and youth in care.
