FORT GREENE, Brooklyn (WABC) -- Young people from across the Tri-State Area will come together for a powerful event called "WE Day," part of a movement aimed at empowering youth to be a force for change in their communities and the world.

"WE Day" rewards students for giving back during the We Movement service-learning program, which asks participating schools to undertake one local and one global initiative during the course of the year.

The inaugural WE New York event will be held at Radio City Music Hall Thursday, bringing together world-renowned speakers, A-list performers, and tens of thousands of youth to celebrate a year of action that transformed communities and changed lives.
