Are you an educator interested in bringing Young Human Rights Changemakers to your classroom?

Young Human Rights Changemakers (YHRC) is a Human Projects program bringing human rights centered service learning to classrooms. Through the program, students work together to understand the human rights issues in their community and create a class project to help address one of the issues. Throughout the process, students gain a deeper understanding of what human rights are and how human rights impact their community. Students also have the chance to see first hand how their actions can have an impact on their community. US based educators will have access to micro-grants of $200 to fund the creation of the classroom human rights project.

WHY YHRC?

Human rights are widely seen as one of the key paths to creating a better world, yet they are not taught to a significant portion of students. Even when human rights are included, they are often presented as a document instead of as a tool that can be used to help the world. YHRC not only educates students about human rights, it shows student how they can use human rights to help their community.
