The American Red Cross’s International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Youth Action Campaign empowers youth and young adults, ages 13-24, to learn about international humanitarian law—the body of law that governs armed conflict.
Young people volunteer to educate the American public on IHL by exploring topics with their communities through peer-to-peer education campaigns. Youth teams participate in an IHL training, during which they learn how to build their own educational campaigns and conduct in-person and social media activities to promote awareness around IHL.
- For the 2021-2022 academic year, teams focused on the Preservation of Cultural Property – how important cultural artifacts can be damaged by armed conflict and the laws in place to protect them.
