2018 Regional Teen Human Rights Symposium @ Human Rights Education Institute
Mar 17 @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

You asked for it! We’ve got it. The 2018 Regional Teen Human Rights Symposium will provide a full-day of human rights education to secondary students ages 13-19 (some exceptions made) and interested in deepening their understanding of human rights history and humanitarian issues today.

The Program has three primary goals:
Develop students’ understanding of the complexities of history, empower students to be leaders in their communities who support human rights and genocide prevention, and to provide examples of past and current role models who have made a difference in their communities and the world.

This Teen Human Rights Symposium will reduce hatred and open dialog for more compassionate youth and young adult citizenship. Students will have a better understanding of human rights, will gain confidence to speak out against bullying and hateful actions, and can infuse an open acceptance of culture and diversity in their communities. We expect students will become more compassionate human beings and develop and share more meaningful relationships on school campuses and in the world around them.
