“How do we, as youth, engage our communities to create positive social change on issues of human rights?”
Rights of the Child is a civic engagement program that connects students and educators in Thailand and the US through a dynamic curriculum on cultural exchange, human rights, rights of the child, and self-advocacy. Run in partnership with Childline Thailand Foundation (CTF),Global Nomads Group (GNG) pairs classrooms in the United States with classrooms in Thailand for one semester (January-June 2014), which builds cultural awareness and global citizenship. Throughout the program, students engage in intercultural dialogue, explore human rights case studies, utilize technology, and learn how to communicate and share ideas across cultures. By equipping students with these critical 21st century learning skills, Rights Of The Child fosters leadership and motivation for youth take positive action in their local and global communities.
