Youth for Human Rights International

Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) is the youth component of United for Human Rights, a global nonprofit organization. Founded in 2001 in Los Angeles, there are now more than 100 Youth for Human Rights International chapters around the world. Their award-winning educational materials are available in 27 languages, bringing the message of human rights to 195 nations.


Every year since 2004, YHRI and its partners have organized an international youth summit, bringing young leaders together with government officials, NGOs and volunteers, to discuss and learn from one another on the subject of human rights education. These major events, held at the end of our President's annual World Tour, have been held in the United States, Switzerland and Belgium, including at the United Nations Headquarters and United Nations Office Geneva, with representatives from across the globe driving forward positive change in many parts of the world.
