The 2011 International Year of Youth Culmination Celebration will take place on August 11th, 2011 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. 192 delegates from all over the country– one girl for each member of the UN General Assembly– will have the opportunity to speak out, change the world and be heard. The annual event is powered by AllyKatzz, an on-line community specifically designed as a safe social networking/blogging platform for teen/tween girls only.
Elmer’s is a proud sponsor of this amazing summit! You might remember that I have had the opportunity to work with Elmer's several times and am a proud member of the Glue n' Glitter community on Collective Bias. Well, they have given the bloggers in our community a fantastic opportunity– THREE delegates will be selected directly from the Glue n' Glitter family, either young female relatives of our bloggers or our audience members!
Do you know a girl who is interested in learning more about the eight millenium goals listed below that were adopted by the United Nations and in coming together with her peers to talk about ways to change them in the future?
1. Poverty and Hunger
2. Universal Education
3. Gender Equality
4. Child Health
5. Maternal Health
6. Combat HIV/AIDS
7. Environmental Sustainability
8. Global Partnership
