Sonoma County Junior Commission on Human Rights Application
The Junior Human Rights Commission was founded in 2013. Our expectation is that the experience of working on the Junior Commission will both encourage participants to be involved in the day-to-day issues that affect their community and stretch the boundaries of their individual and collective exploration of the meaning and impact of human rights.
We believe that participation in the Junior Commission will:
• Produce a comprehensive understanding of the true meaning of Human Rights
• Bring a greater awareness of the day-to-day issues that affect their lives
• Create opportunities to develop communication and facilitation skills
• Empower participants to recognize and act in ways that make a positive impact on their schools,
their families, their friends and their own self esteem
• Result in the knowledge that one individual truly can make a difference
Sonoma County high school students ages 14 through 18 are selected each spring to serve as Junior Commissioners for the following school year. Selection is based on a written application and an interview process.
