Deadline: 2 and 3 March 2014
Open to: youth aged between 18-35 living in Belgium, Italy, Netherlands, and UK
Benefits: training on how to campaign, lobby decision-makers and talk to the media, attendance of ONE events
Do you want to get more involved in the fight against extreme poverty? Develop new skills in creating change? And join hundreds of other young people for two days of activism in Brussels? ONE is recruiting more than 100 volunteers across Europe to lead the fight against extreme poverty by campaigning locally, nationally and online.
You will become a leader for the ONE Campaign in your community and beyond, carrying out a variety of creative, ambitious, and innovative actions to support our campaigns, particularly around the European elections in May 2014. The programme will run for 6 months with national launch events in April, and a Power Summit that will bring Youth Ambassadors from across Europe together in Brussels in July.
At ONE they think youth is a state of mind. Anyone aged 18 – 35 can apply based in Belgium, UK, Italy, and Netherlands, but they would also like to hear from outstanding candidates who are over 35 but still young at heart!
You will receive training on how to campaign, lobby decision-makers and talk to the media. You will have the opportunity to attend ONE events and put your skills into practice in meetings with high-level decision makers. This ambassadorship is not a full-time or paid role. It is a volunteer role that should not take more than a few hours of your time every week.
To apply, send your CV and a cover letter outlining why you would like to be a Youth Ambassador.
