Do you want to be part of the growing global Anne Frank Youth Network challenging discrimination, racism and antisemitism around the world through volunteering in your community?

Why an Anne Frank Youth Network?

Worldwide the Anne Frank House and its partner organisations have worked with over 500,000 young people and every year more than 6,000 young people from over 50 countries volunteer as peer educators. Many young people who participate in our educational activities around the world express a strong desire to do more and continue once they complete a workshop. So, we created the Anne Frank Youth Network.

What does the Anne Frank Youth Network do?

You learn how to organise educational activities and make a positive contribution to society. You act as peer educators; this is when youth teach other youth. These activities aim to tell the life story of Anne Frank in order to raise awareness of the dangers of discrimination, prejudice and anti-Semitism in society.  Contemporary issues are addressed through champoining equal rights, and taking responsibuility. It is this set of values, structures and practices that is at the core of what our members believe in.
