BENEFITING: Global Youth Connect

Faryal Khan

THE STORY:

Hi everyone! As you may or may not already know, I've started volunteering with a great non-profit organization, Global Youth Connect, who's mission it is to advance human rights through cross-cultural programs for emerging leaders, focusing on post-genocide and post-violence countries. This is achieved through 2 week delegations/summits that take place year round where young leaders (14-35) from varying backgrounds can come together and develop skills critical to grassroots organizing, conflict transformation, human rights activism and leadership, and technical support for on-going organizing efforts. The delegates participate in a three-tiered approach: 1. experiential development training through an interactive cross-cultural human rights education workshop 2. site visits with key stakeholders in local human rights efforts, including with members of government, international and local NGOs, and members of the community 3. on-the-ground experience volunteering with local human rights organizations and doing human rights work Some of the countries in which GYC hosts delegations are Bosnia, Rwanda, Colombia and South Africa. GYC has a solid track record of influencing local laws and policies that have made tremendous progress towards economic and social development. We are working to raise money for 3 partial scholarships for deserving young people who come from modest backgrounds that could otherwise not afford to attend a delegation. The organization does its best to offer scholarships, but a small operating budget limits our ability to do so. The lack of need-based scholarships renders it impossible to meet our diversity targets and cover the crushing need for human rights awareness among young people. Please help me to make this transformational program experience a reality for 3 young leaders! To learn more, please go to: http://www.globalyouthconnect.org/ Additionally, if you are affiliated with a University, business or other organization that would be interested in making a larger contribution or are open to exploring a wider partnership with GYC for future scholarships, please get in touch with me! Thank you!
