Sponsored by the American Red Cross
The International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Youth Action Campaign is an American Red Cross sponsored program that encourages youth and young adults to learn about the rules of armed conflict and empowers them to explore IHL through peer-to-peer campaigns.
U.S. Army JROTC is partnering with the American Red Cross to raise awareness on this topic with your community. We are excited to announce that the theme of this year will be Education in War, a relevant and engaging topic given current world events. After the campaigns are complete, JROTC teams will compete to be selected to win awards and to attend the IHL Youth Action Campaign Summer Summit at American Red Cross National Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
