SUMMARY OF THE SHOW
Today we look back at two of our earlier charities...America Scores LA and the Hollywood Police Activities League.
In 1999 the United Nations passed a resolution that 12 August be declared International Youth Day every year. And that day is coming up. The theme for International Youth Day 2018 is Safe Spaces for Youth.
"Youth need safe spaces where they can come together, engage in activities related to their diverse needs and interests, participate in decision making processes and freely express themselves. While there are many types of spaces, safe spaces ensure the dignity and safety of youth. Safe spaces such as civic spaces enable youth to engage in governance issues; public spaces afford youth the opportunity to participate in sports and other leisure activities in the community; digital spaces help youth interact virtually across borders with everyone; and well planned physical spaces can help accommodate the needs of diverse youth especially those vulnerable to marginalization or violence."
