Ghana is one of the countries that believe in her youth. They actively support the quote that says,

“youths are the leaders of tomorrow.”

As a result, the GYD annually celebrates her youth in an eventful ceremony tagged “Ghana Youth Day.”

Some of the topics discussed this year, is in response to the outburst of knife and gun crimes amongst the youth, stemming from the sad loss of lives and the tearing apart of families and communities.

Role models and key influencers were on board to engage the youth through mentoring sessions, careers advice and workshops.

The 2019 edition of the rehabilitating event took place in London at the popular Bernie Grant Arts Centre, Town Hall Approach Road on 7th of September 2019.

It ushered in an exciting seminar, titled “Our Youth, Our Society, Our Future,” to further enlighten African youths on the right step towards building an outstanding future.


In addition to the above,  the day was also graced with entertaining cultural displays with some artists performing live.


Ghana Youth Day, sets a standard on what every youth must do to inherit the right legacies being set by their ancestors.
