Teen Kids News Films Red Cross Clubs International Humanitarian Law Exercise

Teen Kids News, a national TV show broadcast Saturday mornings, came to Greater NY Red Cross headquarters the end of April. They filmed eight high school students, all Red Cross Youth Club members from across New York City, as they participated in an International Humanitarian Law (IHL) training exercise.

During “Raid Cross” the students played roles such as soldier, humanitarian aid worker, and prisoner of war in in simulations designed to teach young people about IHL, or the rules of war. This gave them the opportunity to make tough decisions and experience a small sense of what it is like to participate in a conflict. The segment will air in early fall.
