International Youth Day - August 12, 2020


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 2020, “Youth Engagement for Global Action” seeks to highlight the ways in which the engagement of young people at the local, national and global levels is enriching national and multilateral institutions and processes, as well as draw lessons on how their representation and engagement in formal institutional politics can be significantly enhanced.

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.
