Youth Day has been observed in Cameroon since 1966 and has played an important role in engaging youth in a wide variety of events and activities.

On this day, youth groups all over the country get involved in parades, learning workshops, public music performances, planting trees, community service, sports competitions, and various other activities that young people themselves organise and carry out.

The government also sponsors “youth congresses” that meet in the capital city, Yaounde, and discuss such issues as youth violence, social injustice against youth in Cameroon, climate change, and all manner of youth-related topics. The nation’s youth, as represented at these congresses, will offer their input on how to find solutions to national problems affecting youth.
