Embrey Human Rights Program

Global Youth Connect

Global Youth Connect is an international human rights organization that facilitates cross-cultural human rights programming for youth.

Each GYC human rights delegation is a unique, first-hand opportunity to cross cultural boundaries, learn about the daily reality of human rights as experienced in a complex and increasingly globalized world, and to contribute to progressive action. Each delegation weaves together three core sets of activities:

  • a training workshop with local youth activists
  • site visits to important institutions & historical sites
  • service projects with grassroots organizations

Interested young leaders are encouraged to apply. Participants should be between the ages of 18-35 and possess U.S. or Canadian citizenship or residency, or international students studying full-time at a U.S. or Canadian college or university. Most importantly, applicants should wish to expand their knowledge and understanding of human rights and/or conflict resolution and social justice and to offer hard work, skills, connections to the work already underway in Rwanda, Bosnia, and globally. Participants will become part of a growing global movement of youth acting together for compassion, human rights and responsibility.
