What participants are saying:

"The Child Rights Youth Summit was an AMAZING and special experience!"
"One special thing about this meeting is that it is run by children for children. During this meeting, all of the delegates got to express themselves freely. Children from many different countries attended this meeting; as a result, there were many different perspectives about the topics we discussed.  This meeting was different than I expected; specifically, we all got to speak to one another and do activities together.  I had a great time at the youth summit and wish I could have this opportunity again. I would hope to learn EVEN MORE about my rights and what is happening to other children around the world. "
-Anya (11 years old)
