Fall is a great time for joining or renewing your activism with Amnesty International. We have some exciting new programs in addition to our regular live Amnesty 101 orientations.
Youth Ambassador Training
This is a new program for youth aged 14 to 24. If you are interested in learning how you can engage with Amnesty International and protect human rights, register now to join the new Amnesty Youth Ambassadors training program.
The program will feature three monthly webinars. The first session, on October 6, will introduce you to Amnesty International and how we campaign and engage others on human rights issues. The second session, on November 3, will focus on solidarity with Indigenous Peoples and public speaking, and the third session, on December 1, will explore climate justice and taking public action, including through artivism and demonstrations. All sessions will start at 8 pm Eastern time and feature ASL interpretation and live captioning.
On completion of all three webinars, you will be eligible for a certificate of completion and to have your name added to a speaker’s bureau. An optional showcase will be organized to allow participants to share presentations and support each other.
The Amnesty Youth Ambassador training program is brought to you by the National Youth Action and Advisory Committee (NYAAC) and the Amnesty Canada Outreach and Training Program.
Are you new to Amnesty International, or keen to hear more about how Amnesty started, who we are, and the campaigns and actions we’re promoting this fall? Join Don Wright, Outreach and Training Coordinator, on October 13 at 8 pm Eastern time, for Amnesty 101, a fast-paced introduction to Amnesty priorities and volunteer opportunities. Everyone welcome! Featuring ASL interpretation and Live Captioning.
