To give youth a voice and media outlet that will allow them to become aware and get involved in political and international issues.
Five Minutes to Midnight is an organization devoted to promoting human rights and international issues among the world''s youth. Originally started as a way for young people to share their views about the War in Iraq, it has grown to include all topics within the field of human rights.
Specifically, our mission is "To give youth a voice and media outlet that will allow them to become aware and get involved in political and international issues."
Initially, we worked to achieve this goal through the publication of a monthly issue, where youth shared their views and ideas about current affairs. While this is still our biggest project, our growth has allowed us to work on a number of different projects, including a workshop on media, human rights, and psychology, and a wide range of other independent projects.
