3 Minutes Speech about Youth
Good afternoon Ladies and gentlemen. I am here before you today to deliver a speech about youth. Life has given us a huge and noble gift and that is the youth. Biologically youth is a particular stage of life when an individual is young, and often means the time between childhood and adulthood (maturity). This age represents “the appearance, freshness, vigor, spirit, etc., characteristic of one who is young”.
Youth is a lifetime experience that may shape an individual. It creates the level of dependency, which can be marked in various ways according to different cultural perspectives. At this phase of life, the youth is always driven by fantasy or freedom and the power to choose his or her response.
But all this must be cautiously exercised and every step should be planned. It is the best and appropriate phase to accomplish the dual goals of intelligence and character.
Youth is a critical age of development, a period of uncertainty when everything is in ferment. A youth personality possesses a mixture of both stages; a child and an adult. Their emotions change every time. Like he can be selfish at certain times or turn out to be selfless the very next day.
The same person may also turn out to be rebellious one day. This age is full of heroism, toughness, muscle, stimulation, curiosity, judgmental attitude and even much more. Youth, being argumentative in nature, develop an attitude of apt rationale and judgment.
Youths in Nation Building
The youths have a much more important role in nation-building than you might think. The future of the country depends on them and they represent it at every level. Every youth is equally responsible, for a country’s future. They are the building blocks of a country.
The youths are very energetic and enthusiastic. They have the ability to learn and adapt to the environment. Similarly, they are willing to learn and act on it as well to achieve their goals. Social reforms and improvement of our society is in the hands of youth.
We cannot make changes or progress without the youth of a country. we are the witness of how the development of any country requires active participation from the youth generation.
For any country, in any field, whether it is the technical field or sports field, youth is needed. It does not matter which field we want to progress. It is our responsibility to help the youth in playing this role properly.
Youth Issues and Dealing
Drug abuse is a major youth problem. They use drugs to deal with other issues affecting them and get addicted to it. Peer pressure or poor parenting also result in drug addiction. School violence these days has become a major phenomenon in schools where youths riot and get violent.
Carrying weapons to harm and injure others among the youths is a harmful youth issue. They get into the race to show themselves powerful. Materialism is another major youth issue. These issues are not only harmful to the youths but society too has to pay for this. Proper parenting and education is most vital and should involve bringing up children in a way that they understand the vices of society.
The basic step to solving this problem from roots starts from home and our education systems. The education board should include youth issues in the system so that they are addressed and dealt with even before youths get involved.
Youth is the best period of life to cherish a big dream full of passion and energy. Although, the period is also full of joy, dreams, adventures yet they have to be looked for with the eyes open. It is the actual time when we can provide form and shapes to our ideas for the economic development of society.
To conclude I must say that it is the time to move towards the destination which can be made possible through vocational awareness and critical study of individual differences.
