Youth Resources

Recommended Links

We're under construction!! Please pardon our appearance as we build this page! 


Welcome! This page is for youth who are working to make a positive difference in their community and for those who'd like to get started! Whether through direct action, or as leaders or participants in development and service programs in their home country or elsewhere, explore our recommended resources, information and networks to help get you connected with other young people.


"Let us acknowledge and celebrate what youth can do to build a safer, more just world. Let us strengthen our efforts to include young people in policies, programmes and decision-making processes that benefit their futures and ours."
- Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon message on International Youth Day, August 12, 2010 (See the UN Action Plan for Youth!)
