A year from now, the Cali Valle 2021 Junior Pan American Games will be held. It is a multisport event for young athletes, which will be held in the city of Cali and Valle del Cauca, Colombia, from September 9 to September 19, 2021.

Because this will be the first version of the Junior Pan American Games, their execution will revolve around being number one. In addition, the values of youth and the force of change will be highlighted, that is why the emblem is «Todo X Vos». ("Everything for You").

The first Pan American Youth Games in Cali 2021 will summon more than four thousand athletes between 18 and 21 years old, from 41 American countries that will compete in more than 27 sports and 30 disciplines. 

For Cali, the Junior Pan American Games not only imply a sports responsibility but also a cultural, educational, and social commitment. The organization launched an educational agenda that includes conferences with important Olympic and Pan American medalists, as well as talks and workshops on social inclusion and the unlearning of violence through sports. 

One year before the Junior Games begin and following the same educational line, the Municipal and Departmental Education Secretariats, through public and private schools, as well as universities such as the National Sports School, will promote a training program that encourages the spirit and culture of youth sports. 

There is less and less time before the first Junior Pan American Games in history, which mix sport, education and joy, and will be hosted by “Pana”, a friendly coati in charge of animating this party that will receive future sports legends from America.
