The Zimbabwe Youth Festival is an interactive and youth development platform bringing together young Zimbabwean women and men from different backgrounds. It is aimed at building and supporting a formidable community of youth movement that uses the power of creativity to articulate sensitive issues and advocate for an increased range of human choices.

It is made in such a way that it is the bridge linking young artists, young audiences and the community in general to social development as it is a carrier of development message, a demonstration of youth capacity and an employment creation vehicle. Using the international youth day platform, the festival intends to become a recurring event on the development and artistic calendars of Zimbabwe.
