Humanity Youth Organization (HYO)
“Choose a leader who will invest in building bridges, not walls. Books, not weapons. Morality, not corruption. Intellectualism and wisdom, not ignorance. Stability, not fear and terror. Peace, not chaos. Love, not hate. Convergence, not segregation. Tolerance, not discrimination. Fairness, not hypocrisy. Substance, not superficiality. Character, not immaturity. Transparency, not secrecy. Justice, not lawlessness. Environmental improvement and preservation, not destruction. Truth, not lies.” ? Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem Nearly half of all people in the world today are under the age of 25. Effectively addressing the special needs of these youth is a critical challenge for the future. Youth, individuals between the ages of 15 and 24, make up over one-sixth of the world’s population, but are seldom recognized as a distinct group for the important role they will play in shaping the future.
The challenges facing today’s youth have a tremendous impact on their quality of life. Their reactions will affect their families and communities, and the countries and regions in which they live. Research by the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) indicates that three issue areas are especially vital to today’s youth in developing countries: Education and Training, Economic Opportunities, Health and Sexuality.
Young women and men flourish when they are surrounded by adults, families, and communities that value them by respecting their rights and recognizing their contributions. Youth involvement in the design and administration of programs and policies and in other decisions that affect their lives increases effectiveness and contributes to youth development. Partnerships between adults and youth can lead to success where programs designed by adults for youth have failed. Recognition of the significant asset that our youth represent, and the fact that our future is tied to their development, is an essential ingredient for economic, political, and social stability—both today and tomorrow.
To begin, why is the category of “youth” an interesting one? Youths are important because they eventually become adults and full participants in all aspects of social life. We would like to understand better what the forces are that influence the psychological and cultural development of young people. It also seems clear that young people of numerous countries embody a shifting set of styles, tastes, vocabularies, and values that are distinct from those of their elders. We would like to understand the pathways of influence through which these styles and values are proliferated. But the youth population is important in its own right. The civil rights movement and the anti-war movement around the world each had major or even preponderant participation by mobilized youth. So the generation of people in their teens and twenties can have major political significance.
The organization represents world’s youth in public hearing and gives authentication that reflects the youth perspective. We work with the Countries, non-profits, community organizations, and private entities to develop strategies to improve the lives of world youth. The organization also advises the stake holders of the world community regarding youth issues.
Giving a voice to Globe’s youth in advising key leadership in the world about policies, programs and actions that affect youth. Through this work, the organization will be influential in ensuring that decisions that impact young people have been carefully considered and that the youth perspective is incorporated in the process. The organization will work to bridge the gap between adults and youth, fostering a greater sense of unity, communication and partnership throughout the globe.
