On May 3, 2012, Creative Associates International was pleased to hold an event celebrating youth making a difference in their communities and around the world. The panel and discussion provided young people from diverse backgrounds the space to speak about their experiences growing up in conflict and transition environments and the impact of their experiences on their work to change the future of their nation. Speakers included youth voices from Afghanistan, Egypt, El Salvador and Liberia.
The panelists were selected to participate in the InterAction/Alliance for International Youth Development (AIYD) Forum 2012 which was held on May 1 – 2 in Washington DC.
We would like to thank AIYD, InterAction, Plan International and Save the Children for their support of this panel discussion and their work to promote youth development around the globe.
