This camp offers an opportunity for local youth to raise awareness and act on urgent issues. Interactive presentations will focus on local, national, and international aspects of human rights activism and leadership, and each session will challenge participants to consider how they can positively influence and organize their peers, schools, and communities. This four-day program is rooted in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the principles that underpin Amnesty International public engagement and activism. Facilitators and guest speakers will provide factual information on domestic and international human rights issues, and discussion will be encouraged as part of each presentation. Sessions will also focus on building skills for public engagement, activism, and leadership.
