Young people play a fundamental role in building a more just and egalitarian society, acting in the proposition of public policies and in monitoring laws that assure their rights. This program aims to stimulate the protagonism of youth, especially those in situations of greater social vulnerability. Training activities include workshops and seminars on topics related to human rights of adolescents and young people; research development and building partnerships with government agencies, academic institutions, public schools and social movements that work with this public.
The program also invests in digital technologies such as videos, digital story telling and the Funpage Partiu Papo Reto, to sensitize young people by developing tools widely used by them.
In a collaborative way with this public CEPIA developed the app Partiu Papo Reto on youth’s sexual and reproductive rights and health. Through this program CEPIA has established partnerships and articulations with youth movements, public schools, universities and institutions and services that attend this public, in particular the RAP da Saúde, program of the Municipal Health Secretariat of Rio de Janeiro.
