Welcome to the Human Rights Leadership Program for students grades 8-12.  Designed and developed by the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights, this is password-protected and open only to registered schools and participants.

Using an online format, participants explore human rights while learning civic knowledge, practicing civic skills and fostering civic dispositions that build community.  The program starts with one student working with others in his/her school and communicating with other school teams.  It ends with a completed social action project fostering a culture and climate of human rights and dignity in their school.

Each lesson uses resources developed by Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Conner’s iCivicsreadings from Clifton Taulbert’s Eights Habits of the Heartand project-based instruction inspired by The World We Want Foundation

“This program is about more than just teaching you about leadership and human rights; it puts you on the path to becoming a better citizen of our world” said a former program participant.
