“…the involvement of youth is not something to be sought for [their] sake alone, nor a tool designed to advance [their] needs as a specific population group. Rather, it is a component critical to the well-being of all of humankind, young and old alike.”
—Builders of Civilization: Youth and the Advancement of Humankind
Statement of the Bahá’í International Community
Young people everywhere are known for their idealism, energy, and purity of heart. At the same time, youth must contend with the forces of materialism that are so prevalent in society today.
Youth are the future. But they are also very much present now, as significant actors in our communities, workplaces, and global spaces today. The way they understand themselves, their capacities, and their role in society therefore has significant social consequences.
