Patriotic upbringing

The Young Guard

When taking up his duties, the President of Latvia has prioritised strengthening of national unity, self-esteem, patriotism, and pride for their country among the population in Latvia.

Thus, to promote the development of the Youth Guard movement, to highlight its important role in shaping the future Latvian defenders and to encourage more significant public support to it, the President of Latvia agreed to call of the Minister of Defence Raimonds Bergmanis to become the patron of the Youth Guard movement.

One of the first events, where the President of Latvia as the patron of the Youth Guard movement participated, was the solemn ceremony of affirmation of Young Guards on the Lāčplēsis Day in 2015.
