Migrant Youth Champions
In this project, selected youth leaders champion migrant rights, building their advocacy skills, improving communication and leadership abilities.
Throughout 2021-2022, youth champions will complete 9-month programs. For the first term (3 months), workshops will focus on a multi-sectoral view of migrant rights. After this, champions will focus on building their skills during the second term (3 months). Advocacy capacity building will focus on 6 different topics, including action research, media management, public speaking, event planning, proposal writing and developing advocacy strategies. In term 3, champions will use their learning to implement an individual advocacy project. They will also have the opportunity to make an advocacy toolkit. This program will not only equip champions with the skills they need to be migrant rights activists, but these skills are highly transferable in any future field champions may choose to work in.
