one youth ambassadorsEU40 is happy to support a great initiative: – the ONE Youth Ambassador 2017, which is entering its fourth year in Belgium. ONE is looking for passionate EU campaigners between 18 and 35 years old (35+ years old are also accepted) based in Belgium.

This year presents a great opportunity for the ONE Ambassadors to garner support from politicians across Europe for key issues such as protecting aid budgets, improving financial transparency, and increasing investment in the fight against HIV/AIDS and the fight for girls’ education.

The call for ONE Youth Ambassadors is open to young people between 18-35 years old (35+ are accepted as well). Only applicants living in Belgium will be considered.

Youth Ambassadors will become leaders for the ONE Campaign in their communities and beyond, and will carry out a variety of creative and innovative actions in support of ONE’s advocacy work.

The voluntary programme will run throughout 2017, and each Ambassador will receive training, access to high profile events, in-depth policy briefings as well as dedicated support from ONE’s campaigns team. This role is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to become more engaged in international development or who wants to develop their skills in creating change. As a network of young MEPs empowering young people, we are happy to promote this initiative.

To apply, please submit your CV and cover letter to yabelgium@one.org.

Applications close at 23.59 January 31th 2017.
