The National Youth Agency (NYA) is the leading national youth work charity in England.
As part of their 50th birthday, the NYA is celebrating the impact of great youth work by asking people a simple question: ‘what does youth work mean to you?’
A sample of the comments on their website is below:
“Youth work is inspiring young minds to become great minds! It’s about challenging current norms, social expectations and societal barriers.
Youth work is saying ‘No!’ to boxes designed to keep us trapped, and ‘Yes!’ to doors that can propel us in a positive direction. Youth work is shattering unjustified prejudices and redefining who and what we are, one generation at a time. Its about having the opportunity to seriously change the future of a young persons life, today.“-Luis Lopez, Social Entrepreneur

International Youth Day is celebrated today, August 12th 2014.
The day highlights youth issues to the attention of the international community and celebrates the potential of youth as partners in today’s global society.
This year, the theme is “Youth and Mental Health” under the slogan ‘Mental Health Matters’.
Thematic discussions and campaigns (online and offline) have been taking place across the world to encourage the general public to better be aware of the needs of the youth and to help young people into the decision-making process.
The UN website is full of information and resources on the subject.
Here is also a map of worldly events.
To find out more, check out Full Circle’s coverage of the subject on our social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and Instagram
Feel free to let us know what are your thoughts on the subject.
Do you think young people are given enough tools to contribute? Is mental health still a stigma in society?
