Cristosal Global School Youth Leadership & Human Rights Course in El Salvador

July 7July 14

Youth around the world face unique challenges, from overcoming age-based discrimination to being victims of abuse. As the ones facing these struggles, youth also have the opportunity to confront these issues and respond to them. Through this seminar, we will embrace our ability to take leadership and develop responses to these issues from a youth perspective, incorporating our Christian faith. The seminar will use a human rights framework and intercultural perspective on issues that affect youth around the world, including discrimination and access to justice.

What to expect:

  • Familiarize ourselves with human rights principles and relate them to the Christian faith
  • Examine human rights issues that affect youth in our local contexts, El Salvador, and the world
  • Study the structural roots of injustice and violence in a variety of contexts
  • Strengthen leadership skills with special emphasis on community organizing and creating
    leadership structures that emphasize participation and equality
  • Develop responses to injustice locally and globally by applying a human rights approach

This weeklong course with Cristosal in El Salvador for youth age 14 to 22 is especially suited for (but not limited to) young people who have previously been to El Salvador with the Companion Diocese Youth Pilgrimage. As always, our group of youth and young adults will be accompanied by adult chaperones for the whole week, including travel from Syracuse to San Salvador and back. Potential chaperones please contact the Rev. Charles Stewart (contact info below).

Thanks to funding from the diocesan Companion Diocese committee, up to six people can attend for a reduced cost of $445 plus airfare.

Learn more or submit your application. Registration deadline is April 8, 2018. Please contact the Rev. Charles Stewart (contact information below) for further information.
