International Youth Day focuses on tweens and teens and their place in society. Itโ€™s not just to protect them, but to include them in the development of communities around the world, whether theyโ€™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 todayโ€™s youth can face. Here are some incredible books, some adult literature, but most from youths themselves, inspiring change.
