Youth Venture movement - what it means and how you can contribute:
Participating in the Youth Venture movement is extremely important because it implies that our generation really has the potential to explore and establish areas left ignored by generations before us. It is powerful for us to know that so many young people want to impact the world, ensuring us that we will never run out of resources for advice, knowledge, and support. The idea of student initiative is also extremely important for Action Courage because we are established on the basis that the concerns and desires of our generation sometimes simply need an extra push to actually fully manifest. Just as Youth Venture has already helped us to start realizing our vision, we hope to give others the courage to act. Working at a very personal level, we are demonstrating to other students that everything they need to act is actually sitting right in front of them, and it is only a matter of finding it. While we believe in the dedication and initiative of our peers, we also realize the struggles that walk hand in hand with activism. These obstacles create a gap between what we wish we could do and what we actually act upon. This gap is created when impassioned individuals are unable to manifest their sympathy for a cause because either they don?t have the resources, don?t know where to find existing resources, or don?t feel they have the time to individually run a venture. Action Courage will not only promote the Youth Venture movement, it will also strengthen and diversify its members. The clients of Action Courage will realize the importance of taking the initiative to act, and they will also understand that the hardships are not inevitable. The more youth recognize the opportunities and connections that are intrinsic to the Youth Venture movement, hardly anyone will resist the temptation to act.
