Picture of the Week

These dedicated young men and women come from 15 different countries and represent the voices of youth for the Global Education First Initiative’s Youth Advocacy Group.

The Youth Advocacy Group recently delivered a Youth Resolution: The Education We Want to leaders of the United Nations which articulates key concerns of young people to address the global education crisis.

To celebrate International Youth Day earlier this week, here are 3 things the Youth Advocacy Group says you can do to fight for the rights of youth:

  • Make a plan to hand over the Resolution with your local leaders and share it with us – or tweet a picture or video of you handing it over to them using #IYD2013 and/or #MalalaDay.
  • Lead a community discussion on the issues in the resolution and how they apply to what’s going on at home. Again, make sure to document it on Facebook or Twitter using #IYD2013!
  • Tell us what you’ve been inspired to do since #MalalaDay – Tweet or share a blog post, photos, stories, videos #IYD2013 of you in action!
