Celebrating International Youth Day

12 August 2023

International Youth Day, observed on the 12th of August every year, is a day dedicated to celebrating childhood, advocating for children’s rights, and emphasising the importance of providing a nurturing environment for their growth and development.

In 1945, the Women’s International Democratic Federation proposed the idea of a Universal Children’s Day to promote mutual understanding and tolerance among children from different backgrounds and cultures. The proposal was well-received, and soon after, the United Nations adopted the idea, establishing International Youth Day on the 12th of August. Since then, this day has been celebrated in various countries worldwide with a focus on ensuring the welfare and protection of children everywhere.

Dearne Valley College firmly believes that every child deserves access to an excellent education and the chance to reach their full potential, regardless of their background or circumstances. With a vision to nurture a generation of confident and capable individuals, Dearne Valley College has established initiatives that prioritise children’s well-being, education, and overall growth.
