The celebration, which will be under the theme “1 Million Next Level is Knocking: A Youth-led Movement that Transcends Borders,” will be commemorated at the Sheraton Hotel.

Sarah Mateke, announced that as one of the focus areas of the 1 Million Next Level Initiative, the celebrations will be centred around education and skills development, which will provide an opportunity to celebrate young people’s invaluable contribution to transforming education.

“Africa Youth Day is a day dedicated to celebrating the energy, determination, triumph, creativity, and resilience of the African youth across the African continent and in the diaspora,” Hon. Mateke stated.

The minister said that the celebrations will include a series of engaging activities, panel discussions, workshops, and entertainment. All these will be aimed at empowering and inspiring young people to realise their full potential.
