In commemoration of International Youth Day, Partners of the Americas is proud to support the United Nations in celebrating the power of youth as agents of change. This year’s theme is “Transforming Education,” centering on making education more inclusive and accessible for all youth.
Today, Partners of the Americas commemorates World Youth Skills Day (WYSD) by recognizing the power of adequate skills training to combat youth unemployment. This year, WYSD centers on ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education for all under Sustainable Development Goal 4. At Partners, we work toward this goal by teaching youth marketable skills and emphasizing the importance of education to transform lives around the world.
The Kentucky-Ecuador Chapter shares its best practices for recruiting new members and volunteers for projects. The practices include: (1) reaching out to people; (2) sharing your enthusiasm for Partners; (3) telling prospective members how they can make a significant contribution to their projects; and (4) using volunteers from other projects.
I wish you all a wonderful 2019. This past year we were able to accomplish so much through your support.
