Some of our Model Quotes:
"Young people should be at the forefront of global change and innovation. Empowered, they can be key agents for development and peace. If, however, they are left on society's margins, all of us will be impoverished. Let us ensure that all young people have every opportunity to participate fully in the lives of their societies."--Koffi Annan
Guard your light and protect it. Move it forward into the world and be fully confident that if we connect light to light to light, and join the lights together of the one billion young people in our world today, we will be enough to set our whole planet aglow.
“What is needed now are increased efforts to promote youth participation
and commitment; more services aimed at youth; more parental involvement; more
education and information, using schools and other sites; more protection for
girls, orphaned children and young women;and more partnerships with people with
HIV and AIDS.“
-- Carol Bellamy
"The young, free to act on their initiative, can lead their elders in
the direction of the unknown... The children, the young, must ask the questions
that we would never think to ask, but enough trust must be re-established so
that the elders will be permitted to work with them on the answers."
-- Margaret Mead
