National Youth Day
Youth are the future of humanity, and they deserve to be celebrated. The young people of today are celebrated and honored throughout the year, in different parts of the globe, including National Youth Day.
This National Youth Day in India dates back to 1984, when the government decided that this day should be devoted annually to paying attention to the youth of the culture. National Youth Day in India is observed on January 12th. This is to honor Swami Vivekananda’s birthday. He was an important figure in India during the 19th century, and believed in the power youth have. Swami Vivekananda advocated ideals and philosophies that could be a great source for inspiration, and for the youth in India.
Indian schools and colleges celebrate National Youth Day with a variety of events, including speeches, music and seminars, processions, sport, competitions, and other activities.
At least 18 countries have their own days to honor their youth. The United Nations declared International Youth Day in 1999. This international holiday is intended to be observed around the world.
National Youth Day is a great time to celebrate and show appreciation for all the young people around the world who are capable of achieving their full potential.
Enjoy National Youth Day in fun and creative ways with these ideas:
The world is often centered around adults. National Youth Day may be the perfect opportunity to show young people how much you appreciate them. Tell them how important they are to you and how proud of them they are that they are making a difference in the world. Encourage them to continue moving forward by affirming their positive qualities.
A charity that supports youth today is a great way to celebrate National Youth Day. Many non-profit organizations like Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and Boys & Girls Club of America, YMCA and First Place for Youth need volunteers to help with tutoring, programming, or just spending extra time with children who are in dire need. Volunteer opportunities may be available at local schools.
In honor of National Youth Day, those who cannot volunteer might consider donating to a charity that helps young people.
Teachers, parents, and youth leaders have the opportunity to host an event in celebration of National Youth Day. You could gather special young people at school to host an awards ceremony celebrating their achievements. You can also host a party with snacks and music as a school assembly to celebrate the day. This will let students know that you appreciate them.
