Celebrate Literacy Week: Youth For Change

Youth for Change youth activism booklist

January 25-29 is 2021 Celebrate Literacy Week in Florida! Created to promote literacy and excellent reading habits in the students of Florida, this year’s theme was “Humanity tells a story: What’s YOUR chapter?” The youth of today are not just “future leaders” – many are effectively advocating for and affecting change right now. Thanks in part of social media and technology, these children and teens are using their voice, tech-savvy, and social influence to bring about positive change in their schools, communities, and the country at large. Examples of youth activists, inventors, business owners, and thought leaders are abundant and growing.
