Child rights

Child rights ambassadors

A team of young people from Scottish Borders Youth Voice have created a resource pack for their peers to learn about Child Rights.

The Child Rights Ambassador Handbook (updated September 2017) is the result of 18 months commitment and dedication by a group of 10 young people aged 13-18 who volunteered their time and ideas to the Child Rights Ambassador programme.

It contributes to the promotion of the UNCRC and encourages young people to be leaders in their school or community by teaching others about rights, including their peers, parents and teachers.

If you would like more information about the Handbook or how to set up a Child Rights Ambassador programme in your school or youth group please get in touch with Scottish Borders Youth Voice.
