The Youth are the most potential, creative and productive workforce in a society. Young people are good dreamers of today and of tomorrow. They dream of worth-living lives in the periphery of family, society, state and the world as a whole. With all the differences of language, color or religion all the young people have a common desire of peace, love and poverty free life. This common desire of the youth is required to be given a practical shape and this is the demand of the day.
Certainly youths have unfailing potentiality. What is needed most is to give them a sense of direction so as to exploit their potentiality for productive purpose. If they are guided, mobilized and motivated properly and channelised in right direction, they can contribute a lot to national and international upliftment. Admittedly, without active participation of the youth force in national and global development processes the total development efforts can not make much headway.
When service and intercultural learning are combined, young people contribute their time and talent from the perspective of their own diverse backgrounds. Cooperating with youth from different, regions, or communities can result in dialogue, mutual understanding and conflict prevention, and allows youth around to uncover and address increasingly complex local, national and global problems. Such opportunities contribute to the development of civic responsibility among youth in partnering communities throughout the world.
- Youth can share information about their culture, their community, and the needs they’re addressing through service.
- Youth can participate in a news exchange, sharing the news stories they are paying attention to in their communities. Youth can also visit websites of news media from each other's regions. Students can then discuss similarities and differences in how the news is selected and presented in their regions.
- Youth can interact throughout the project planning process, sharing ideas through exchanging letters/e-mails, online chat, or video message. Resources include Skype, Chatzy, Google Chat & Google Voice, and Facebook. These tools can also be used to connect youth during their project as well.
