International Youth Day 2020

Happy #InternationalYouthDay!


Today we recognize and give thanks to the young people who’ve supported their communities in the U.S. and abroad, especially during COVID-19 pandemic.

International Youth Day is commemorated every year on August 12 by the United Nations. This years theme is “Youth Engagement for Global Action”. Check out The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) on Twitter @ECAatState who will celebrate by sharing impactful stories from youth exchange alumni. Through the power of exchanges, today’s youth are gaining the experience and skills needed to make global change.
