Volunteer Program – There
are two parts to our volunteer program.
The main program runs year round and is about involving youth in their
communities and schools. The second is
our internship program, which runs during the school year. It requires young people to be active
participants in the different working groups at the United Nations on behalf of
children. These committees include but
not limited to: The Girl Child NGO committee, The Convention on the Rights of
the Child Committee, and the Education Committee. Youth also help in running workshops, congresses, and other
Pen-Pal Program – The
purpose of the program is to
give children the opportunity to discuss issues affecting them and
in their local communities and the global community as well. It
gives them a chance to learn about each
other’s culture and lives without having to travel thousands of
miles. Plus they get to learn about each other’s
countries and traditions through their pen pal’s eyes.
Through our program we bring together
children from, the United States and kids from all over the world.
Children’s Rights Congress – An annual conference
honoring the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The convention is a document that was
adopted by all member states to the United Nations in 1989 and instituted as
international law in 1990. The CRC is
the world’s most comprehensive and ratified international agreement on the
basic protections that should be given to children. Every year, young delegates from many member nations of the
United Nations meet for the day. They will spend time working and playing
together… and they think about what children and grownups have done and can do
to help children in every country of the world. The youth participants
develop plans for further work, which they can share with other young people
Days Against Violence – A series of youth-run
workshops targeting violence and conflicts which children face in their
everyday life. We look at the root
causes of their problems and help young people find positive solutions to them. Workshops are run throughout the year at
schools, community centers and youth organizations.
Children’s Rights Workshops – They are a series of
workshops based on the efforts of the Children’s Rights Congress to raise
awareness among youth in the United States and across the world. It’s also a continuous effort to help the
Campaign to Ratify the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child in
the United States, as well as enforce it across all the nations of the world.
