Category: Disability, Basic Health and Welfare, Civil Rights and Freedoms


Amnesty International has launched Rise Up which is a fully funded, one-year course designed to equip young people who are passionate about Human Rights with the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to make positive change happen in their communities.

Rise Up is interested in Human Rights issues such as: housing rights, refugee rights, LGBTI rights and many more. They will be looking for 16-24 year-olds to take part and are encouraging applications from marginalised groups, without existing access to resources, funding or training.

Starting in September 2019, the course will consist of four weekends over a year at Amnesty's London headquarters (expenses will be covered).

Applications are now open, and can be completed via video or in writing. Applications in pairs are also welcome!
