YouthAlert! (YA!) "Youth Peace" Advocacy at U.N.

YouthAlert! (YA!) U.S.A. has been putting its Special Consultative Status to ECOSOC at the United Nations to good use. We serve all 193 UN Member States equally. We maintain that our 1.8 billion youth in the world are equal in importance, meaning value and worth without a single exception. We try to focus on "the worse, first" regions of the world. We are working very hard for a cease-fire in the Syrian Arab Republic (SAR) by all parties. Syria is the worst humanitarian crisis in the world with millions of refugees and people that are displaced. We are working very hard for food and other various humanitarian aid to the youth in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). Our goal in both regions is that "youth do not suffer" in wartime, peacetime, or anytime. These two nations together we believe could have a "Peace Domino Effect" on all nations of the world.

Youth Peace is working on the problem of unjustified violence from the inside out All the world's violence we believe is mainly directed at youth. When adults have a disagreement, it seems like that it is youth who pay the price every time. And 99 percent of all violence we believe is unjustified. Not essential self-defense.

Peace is the solution, and we believe teamwork is the answer to get to that solution. The team we advocate most for is an equal adult/youth team. Half of the world is 30 years of age or younger. Peace, we believe is the first step but not the last one. Human happiness and human survival are the ultimate goals.

Peace, to us, is the absence of violence, bullying and abuse #VBA or the threat of #VBA in line with the good principles of humanity: Peace, Life, Love, Freedom & Equality & the correct application of them meaning one principle cannot be sacrificing for another.

YouthAlert! (YA!) U.S.A. is continuing its Child and Youth Peace Program during the pandemic virtually. Our program is "Survival 101" for all children and youth. We consider then year olds thought twenty years old to be youth. Years nine and younger, children only. There is 1.8 billion youth (between the ages of 10 and 24) in the world and we believe they are all equal in meaning importance, value, and worth without exception. We believe in teamwork is the answer and that an equal youth/adult team may be the best team to bring about lasting world peace.
