Selena Gomez will host the third annual WE Day special, set to air Aug. 4 on CBS.
"Highlighting some of the most important social issues facing America and the world today -- from equality and accessibility, to homelessness and poverty, to inner city violence and social activism, to education and literacy -- WE Day unites likeminded individuals and provides a platform for youth and families to create change in their communities and around the world," a network press release explained.
"My first WE Day experience was three years ago and to say I was impressed is an understatement," said Gomez in a statement.
"The electricity of an arena full of thousands of young people who are making real change in the world is like nothing I've ever experienced. I am grateful to be a part of such a supportive community and hope I can inspire the kids at WE Day just as they continue to inspire me."
