This organisation believes these youth heroes should be celebrated before Youth Day on June 16.
Activate! Change Drivers sees itself as developing youth who act as a “positive social force” in their communities, creating a network of young people who are social, political and economic drivers towards positive change.
Activate! communications manager Kim Barlow said its network has been in existence for seven years.
“The positive impact these young people have had on their communities is astounding - 90% of the network is involved in at least one pro-social activity - this is unprecedented in a time when self-enrichment and personal gain takes preference over the well-being of the collective.
