International Youth Day focuses on tweens and teens and their place in society. It’s not just to protect them, but to include them in the development of communities around the world, whether they’re rich or poor.

Among the focal areas for youth development and protection with this UN initiative include education, employment, the environment, delinquency, girls and young women, HIV/AIDS and intergenerational relations. Beginning in the year 2000, it is an initiative that celebrates the qualities of young people and that recognises the challenges that today’s youth can face. Here are some incredible books, some adult literature, but most from youths themselves, inspiring change.
