“How do we get more young people to join our organization? This is a question frequently asked by Humanists International member organizations all over the world. It’s vital for us to create spaces where youth feel not only included but feel that there is room for them to grow and influence the organization as a whole. The future of humanism will not look as it does today– we are on the path to creating a more diverse movement that can young people will confidently carry forth.
