Personal note: China is doing a lot to improve the lives of all peoples…there are 56 ethnic groups in China, and 55 are ethnic minority groups, forming about 10 percentage of the 1.4 billion people in China. And China is doing everything in their power to make sure all young people are getting the education and training they need to better their lives in mainland China. This page shows a few examples of the young people doing their best to contribute to the well being and progress and future of modern mainland China. We should be proud of their work and dedication to improving their own lives and the lives of all those around them.

A nation will prosper only when its young people thrive; a country will be full of hope and have a great tomorrow only when its younger generations have ideals, ability, and a strong sense of responsibility. Young people always play a vanguard role in realizing national rejuvenation, which is the mission of the Chinese youth in the new era. In China many young people realize the value of life through hard work. They are writing a brilliant chapter worthy of our times in their efforts to take advantage of their youthful vigor, explore life and contribute to society. (Xinhua/Liu Lei)
