Youth for Human Rights International

Youth for Human Rights International is a nonprofit organization founded with the purpose of teaching youth about human rights, specifically the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and inspiring them to become advocates for tolerance and peace. YHRI has grown into a global movement, including hundreds of groups, clubs, and chapters around the world. Youth for Human Rights International teaches human rights education both in the classroom and in nontraditional educational settings. They aim to reach people from diverse backgrounds, with materials which often appeal across generations. By teaching human rights through all means—from conferences and workshops to hip-hop and dancing—this message has spread around the world.
