    Amnesty International Canada will hold its 2017 Human Rights College (HRC) for Youth from May 30th to June 4th, in Calgary, AB.

    The HRC is a three day youth leadership training that takes place just prior to, and is connected with, our AGM. The HRC aims to empower and support young activists within Amnesty to facilitate their active leadership role within Amnesty International's youth program. The HRC will be a mix of skills and learning workshops, along with an opportunity for all participants to have a hands-on experience of testing out their new skills.

    The college directly precedes Amnesty Canada’s Annual General Meeting which all members of the HRC then go on to take part in.

    Applications for the Human Rights College are now being accepted and are due on March 27th.

    If you have any questions regarding the Human Rights College or would like an application, please contact

    We look forward to seeing you in Calgary!
