Youth In Action

Do you see injustice in the world around you? Do you want to make a difference?

Amnesty needs your help to fight for human rights in your community and around the world. You can start or join a youth group in your school, college or hometown.

Youth groups are involved in a range of activities:

  • Organise events, talks, art campaigns or information stands to raise awareness and recruit supporters
  • Lobby politicians
  • Organise demonstrations and protests
  • Collect signatures to petition governments around the world.
  • Participate in our Write for Rights letter writing campaign
  • Host creative fundraising events like AmnesTEA parties, AmKNITsy knitathons, or JAMnesty gigs
By joining an Amnesty group, you’ll:

  • Meet like-minded people
  • Develop campaigning, organisation and teamwork skills.
  • Influence how Amnesty campaigns for human rights by voting at our AGM
  • Join our activism team as we campaign at events and festivals across the country
Many colleges have Amnesty groups which you can get involved with. To find out what’s going on at your college follow the links below:

If your school or college doesn’t have an Amnesty group, and you’d like to start one, please email or call us on (01) 8638300. We can provide you with resources, ideas and connections to other activists.

TY applications for work placements are now closed for the academic year 2018.
