Youth & Student Groups

At Amnesty International Canada youth make up the largest portion of our membership, which means that the work you do in your school and community is central to the success of Amnesty International. 

Amnesty Canada Youth and Student groups can be found in all levels of schooling, and in communities across the country.  Setting up a club is easy and we will provide you with tools and support to get your group up and running. 

Individual Youth Members

For as little as $15 a year, you’ll hear about human rights first, and first hand as a member of Amnesty International, and keep in the loop on the most pressing global human rights issues. Amnesty’s latest actions, online petitions, contests, and campaigns will start with you.
