Raising Youth Voices During COVID-19
COVID-19 has impacted the daily lives of millions of children across the globe. Nearly 1.5 billion children and youth in 165 countries are affected by COVID-19 school closures. As a result of these closures, governments have been developing distance learning solutions that aim to provide remote education while supporting students, teachers, and parents. Equitable distance learning continues to be at the forefront as school closures disproportionately impact the most vulnerable children and families. Currently, youth around the world are taking action to ensure that all youth, including themselves, have access to quality education in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
