Variety’s Power of Youth, which took place today (in the rain) from noon to 3 pm at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles CA, is an initiative that celebrates top young talent and their involvement with philanthropic and humanitarian causes, and encourages their fans around the world to get involved and give back too. The event, now in its 4th year, is an invitation-only afternoon full of fun and festivities, with live performances, interactive games, activities, food, photo opportunities and a special presentation: a veritable ”who’s who” of Hollywood’s under 18 set. Not even today’s LA drizzle could dampen the spirits of these young stars.
This year honorees include Justin Bieber, David Henrie, Victoria Justice, Shailene Woodley and Bow Wow, each of whom, through their efforts, have made a significant difference to their chosen causes.
