TYEE joined hands together with the Ministry of Internal Affairs - Youth Division and the participating Youth Stakeholders in a Float Parade in Nuku'alofa on Saturday, 11th August 2018. It has been a long week of Youth consultation workshops and celebrations. This is the second to the last day for all to come together and shine at the nation's future generation National Youth Week in leading up to the International Youth Day on Sunday, 12th August 2018.
Despite of the rain - the work must carry on and so did the music!

Special acknowledgement to the TYEE non-registered Youth who gave up their Saturday morning to help out and make our float possible - we did it together. Your enthusiasm is as bright and colourful as the balloons. May you continue to shine Tonga Youth.
Rain or shine we must attend to our work commitment. For that TYEE is truly grateful to you all.
