The path toward the goal of a world where people treat each other with respect and dignity is through effective education. Many human rights organizations focus on research and advocacy for the victims of abuse. Youth for Human Rights International complements this work by addressing those issues with educational materials and activities.
The Youth for Human Rights Online Education iPad application is designed for elementary, middle and high school students. It may be used as a full course or as a supplemental resource within another curriculum. The aim is to engage students in human rights topics and provide opportunities to put human rights principles into action and use.
While the materials were designed for teachers, they are equally appropriate for youth group leaders—both religious and secular—as well as mentors and parents.
The application gives you access to the complete Educator’s Guide, the documentary film The Story of Human Rights, 30 award-winning public service announcements illustrating the 30 human rights, the UNITED music video and two booklets, What Are Human Rights? and The Story of Human Rights.
As has been proven in many different settings, any caring person who works with youth can use these materials to raise awareness of human rights. Download the app and get started today!
