Call for Applications: Global Youth Connect's Summer 2013 Human Rights Programs

Deadline: January 7, 2013 (Early Decision), February 15, 2013 (Regular Decision)

Global Youth Connect, a human rights education and activism organization based in NYC, is accepting applications from young leaders for its Summer 2013 programs, which will take place in Rwanda and in New York City.

Each program brings 15 visiting youth (from around the world) together with 15 youth in the host location (Rwanda or NYC) to engage together in three key activities:

- A cross cultural human rights workshop
- Visits/Meetings with policy makers, organizations, and to relevant sites
- Volunteer service with grassroots NGOs on a variety of human rights issues including but not limited to: education, health care, food/shelter, access to justice, human rights of marginalized persons (including children/youth, women, low-income populations, LGBTQ populations, indigenous populations, genocide survivors)

Given the age range of the programming 16 - 30 (NYC) & 18 - 35 (Rwanda), this is an opportunity for not only students but also for young teachers and professionals to gain intercultural human rights experience and get involved in the global human rights movement.

The early decision deadline is January 7, 2013. The regular application deadline is February 15, 2013.

Some scholarships are available.
