    Are you a young person with a passion for human rights and a desire to develop your leadership skills? Are you committed to kindness and respect? Do you want to learn more about Amnesty International's work? Then the Amnesty International Human Rights College is the opportunity for you!

    Whether you are new to Amnesty International, or have been involved for as long as you can remember, we encourage you to apply. Participating in the Human Rights College will change your life!

    In all, it’s a five day immersion in Amnesty International. First, you will spend three days with like-minded youth aged 15 to 25 from across Canada. That’s three days of skills workshops, discussions, activities and hands-on experiences that will enable you to test out your new skills on the spot. You will also be equipped to play an active role in the Annual General Meeting (AGM) and to take on leadership roles when you return to your school and community.
