Amnesty Youth

Young people are the drivers of social change and play a vital role in Amnesty International’s work.

This section of the website is for school students, youth activists, student activists and teachers who care about human rights and want to make a difference. Here you will find some resources on human rights, ways to get involved with Amnesty International Ireland, learn more about justice and equality, and find out what you can do to take positive action.

Join us in creating a community of people in Ireland who care about equality and the dignity of all people and take action together.
