Learn about activism and human rights and how to use your voice to make a difference.

If you are a 4th or 5th year secondary school student, we are inviting you to participate in our free Activism Academy.

We want to create and support a new diverse group of youth activists and leaders who are knowledgeable about human rights and activism and know how to take simple but impactful action with others.

The Activism Academy is divided into two different blocks. The first block took place from October to December 2023 and the second block will run over 3 months (February to April 2024). For the first block, the academy focused on Right to Protest, Write for Rights and Anti-Apartheid Campaign. The second block will focus on Right to Protest, climate change and Pride. In May groups from both blocks will meet for a workshop to prepare for Amnesty Ireland’s presence during Dublin Pride Parade.

Participants will engage in human rights education that will support action on suggested campaign activities, including mobilising their peers.

Meetings take place once a month in person in our head office and will last approximately 2 hours.

The meetings will be hosted by human rights activists and guest speakers from Amnesty International and around the world.

Interested? Sign up now for our second block! If interest is high, we cannot guarantee a place for everyone, but we will do our best to facilitate as many people as possible.

The deadline for applications has now closed.
