Young people play a key role in Amnesty International’s vision of a world in which every person enjoys all human rights.

The Youth, Power, Action! Global Children and Youth Strategy (2022-2025) sets the direction for Amnesty International’s work for, by and with children and young people. It will be delivered by people from all generations, with children and young people themselves in the driving seat. By drawing on the energy, creativity and skills of children and young people, and by enabling and empowering their active participation across all levels of our work, we aim to create an environment in which they actively contribute to human rights impact and play an integral role in achieving our vision and the priorities of the Global Strategic Framework.

At Amnesty International we work with and for young people on the issues that are most relevant to their lives. Although young people can be viewed as a single, homogeneous group defined exclusively by age, in reality they have multiple identities shaped by factors such as, but not limited to, gender, race, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability or nationality. By enabling and empowering the active participation of young people at all levels of our work, we aim to create an environment in which they actively contribute to human rights impact.

TOGETHER, WE CAN REALIZE OUR COLLECTIVE POWER
