Be a part of the IHL Action Campaign
The IHL Action Campaign is an exciting youth program of the American Red Cross. Through the IHL Action Campaign, you learn about International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and then create and implement your own campaign in order to teach your peers about the importance of these rules of war. In the 2014-15 year, young people participating in the IHL Action Campaign directly reached more 54,000 people both in person and online through simulations, videos, skits, art displays, trivia games, social media campaigns, presentations, and more.
To get involved, contact your local chapter. National Headquarters is offering grant funding to chapters to support the recruitment and training for the IHL Action Campaign, and your chapter staff can help you apply.
Interested chapters should submit the completed 2015-2016 grant application by Wednesday, July 15, 2015.
For more information on the program, please contact Yenisleidy Simon Mengana, Youth Education Program Officer, at Yenisleidy.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be part of a team that makes a difference and shares the message that there is humanity even in the midst of war.
