International Youth Day
International Youth Day is celebrated worldwide on 12th August every year. It offers a platform to celebrate and recognise the efforts and contribution of youth to global causes and raise awareness about challenges faced by them. With changing times, the role of youth is more important than ever. Their active involvement plays a vital role in the betterment of society.
The theme for International Youth Day 2020 is “Youth Engagement for Global Action”. The aim is to involve and engage the youth in building a better community and actively involve them in various social and volunteering programs.
With COVID-19 spreading quickly across the globe, we need to explore newer ways to offer our assistance. Virtual volunteering opens multiple avenues to extend the support to the society. Here are some ways in which young volunteers can reach out to support a cause close to their heart. All that one needs is internet connectivity, a device to work on – like a laptop or a phone and the willingness to help.
- Event blogging: It is important to raise awareness about causes that needs attention. This can help with fundraising, employing more volunteers, and increasing general awareness.
- Data entry: Every program needs extensive data analysis, and for this, there is a need to build the database with data entry.
- Support education: There are various ways to support educational causes, and this includes tasks like recording audiobooks for print-impaired and teaching English or soft skills to underprivileged youth.
- Content Curating and Marketing: Tech-savvy youth can assist with writing newsletters, website content, and help promote the cause for non-profits.
There are many ways in which youth can participate based on their skills, passion, and time contribution.
