Building a framework of positive role models is vital to developing responsible, confident young adults. National Youth Confidence Day on October 20 encourages us to connect and inspire today’s youth for tomorrow’s success.
National Youth Confidence Day celebrates the energy, spirit, and potential of young people. The day is an acknowledgment of all they will accomplish. Guidance, leadership and mentors will help light the path, and today’s youth will navigate the obstacles that will inevitably lay before them.
Take the opportunity to welcome a young person into your life and accept that their mistakes will be similar to ones you’ve made yourself. Offer encouragement that these mistakes are merely lessons and they will only need to learn from them and gain experience to attain their goals. Share your wisdom and listen to their fears. Celebrate their successes and help them to learn from their defeats.
HOW TO OBSERVE
