Higher Youths Malta is a Non-Governmental Organisation, an informal group made up of youths who have finished their studies in Biology, Geography or Environmental Education. The coordinators who came up with the idea to form this group are high school teachers employed at Giovanni Curmi Higher Secondary School (GCHSS). The NGO’s ethos is that of empowering youths to further their education and employment skills. It focuses on promoting and integrating diversity, providing equal opportunity for all. Higher Youths also strives hard to promote environmental awareness and the importance of sustainable living by exposing interested youths to innovative, intercultural learning and memorable experiences, both locally and overseas. The group also strives to enrich the youth’s interest in being active citizens by instilling in them the need to help community members through fund raising activities that are held throughout the year.
