THE VOICE OF SOCIAL MEDIA# In today’s world people can communicate over great distances. You can even chat with someone who is on the other side of the globe as though you were in the same room. All this is possible because of social media. Social media is an essential tool in the work that we do as advocates for change and if anything voices of youth is a social networking site. Not long ago I had the privilege of attending the Zambia Children’s Climate Conference 7 and o...

How many children around the world use the internet and mobile phones? How are children using social media? What are the risks to children using digital tools? What are the opportunities for improving access to information and education? The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child tells the world the rights that ALL children have. But the Convention came about in 1989 - long before the internet became available to everyone; long before nearly everyone had a mobile phon...

Hey guys! This post is just to assure you that I am still alive and well (: I have been pretty busy with exams. I'm writing my last exam for the term tomorrow so I'm looking forward to posting with more frequency! Things I'm happy about this week: 1) The "re-boot" of Internet activism. I'm sure you've all seen the ALS ice bucket challenge that has succeeded in raising donations within a few days to the ALS foundation by millions of dollars and has helped raise aw...

Using social media is one of the most common activities among today's youth. A recent survey in the U.S. shows that 51% of teenagers log on to their favorite social network at least once a day and that 22% of young people do more than 10 times daily (Common Sense Media, 2009). Sites like Facebook, YouTube or Twitter, which have developed at high speed during recent years are proving highly popular with young people, especially because they offer them the opportunity to be entertain...

My name is Kesia and I am 18 years old from Zambia. The internet - which includes Facebook, Google, twitter - plays the big part in the average youths everyday life. The internet has been received with many different opinions. Some have welcomed it with open arms but in some extreme cases it is declared evil. A wise man once said "a knife in the hands of a chef can be used to prepare a meal but the same knife in the hands of the murderer will be used to take a life." This saying...

Are you a fan of GIFs? Well the great news is that they can be included in your VOY posts. I think that they're a fun way of sharing words of wisdom and inspirational quotes, from films and other forms of media. We'll to post them on a regular basis with a short explanation of why they were chosen. But we'd love your suggestions and submissions too - either in the comments section or on Twitter (@voicesofyouth). This GIF is one that I created using a plugin for Google Chrome....

From installing baby gates to fastening bike helmets and seat belts, parents put their kids' safety first. But once kids hit adolescence, the risks can become less obvious. When it comes to teen dating violence, for example, many parents are blind to the risk and so don't offer the help their children may need. Even when parents recognize teen dating abuse, their attempts to intervene can be off-target and often go ignored.

A 17 year old boy has recently been accepted to all TOP 8 Ivy League Schools in America. We should be so proud that one of our children of 2014 has achieved something really immense, instead of being a typical kid who is interested in all social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr. He decided to take his brain to the next level and read books, study constantly, and go to school. This boy reminds me of my brother, my brother is 21 years old. He is my inspration bec...
