Youthreach Competition

Your Rights Right Now partnered with the Youthreach Programme, to launch an exciting competition to find a student from Youthreach to join the team which travelled to Geneva. 


Youthreach is directed at unemployed young early school leavers aged 15-20. It offers participants the opportunity to identify and pursue viable options within adult life, and provides them with opportunities to acquire certification and employment opportunities.

Your Rights. Right Now and the Youthreach Programme want to find a Youthreach student who, through their competition entry, demonstrates the ability to spotlight a human rights, social justice or inequality issue.

The winning Youthreach student will travel with the 'Your Rights Right Now' Delegation for the trip to Ireland's international examination in Geneva. They will visit the offices of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and see representatives from the Irish Government being asked important questions about their human rights record, learning first hand about how the international human rights system works and will get a two week placement with a human rights organisation in order to develop their experience and knowledge of human rights in Ireland.

The Youthreach Competition is kindly sponsored by Gallagher Shatter Solicitors and the runners up prizes have kindly been sponsored by D.I.D Electrical.
