Posted on April 18th, 2017 in Articles, Youth ActivismRespond to this post »

There is one main motivating factor that leads young people into activism – the will and passion to change the world for the better. And while they are trying to achieve this for the world, activism actually changes them for the better. Being a young activist teaches you how to be a better person yourself.
