2019 Human Rights Teen Symposium Unity Day Concert
Our Target population for this symposium is middle and high school youth, and young adults in Kootenai County and the surrounding region. While collaborating with school districts and Human Rights Task Forces in the region’s communities, there has been an overwhelming, universal request for a youth symposium that will expand the potential for youth and young adults to actively participate in activities promoting human rights and have their voices on human rights and diversity issues heard.
The Program has three primary goals: Develop students’ understanding of the complexities of history, empower students to be leaders in their communities who support human rights and genocide prevention, and to provide examples of past and current role models who have made a difference in their communities and the world. Since ignorance is the main cause of hate, we expect students will become more compassionate human beings and develop and share more meaningful relationships on school campuses and in the world around them.
Local students will be acknowledged for their exemplary projects developed at the Teen Symposium promoting a uniting for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion against bullying.
