KidsRights believes that young people are changemakers. KidsRights is an internationally acclaimed organization that, together with children, fights for the rights of children all over the world. The KidsRights middle-high school curriculum, inspired by the remarkable efforts of KidsRights’ International Children’s Peace Prize Winners was developed in conjunction with Rock Your World, a highly-regarded comprehensive social action curriculum that teaches students how to have a positive impact on a human rights issue about which they care most.
In keeping with KidsRights’ mission, the lessons first introduce students to children’s rights through the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and then inspires your students to take positive action in their community and globally about issues related to these rights. Your students are provided with unique tools - like the KidsRights Index & KidsRights Reports - and skills needed to become informed changemakers. The lessons can be used as either standalone or subject-integrated curriculum for the classroom, and with formal after school programs focused on Service Learning, Community Service, and Social Justice activities.
