After the success of the first initiative in 2018 – 2019, which mobilized 42 Youth Advocates (18-24 years old) in 27 countries, UNICEF, in partnership with UNV, is now looking for the second cohort. They are searching for 20 young, passionate, and skilled advocates to join us and become agents of change advocating for the protection of children’s rights. The Youth Advocates Programme offers young people the chance to gain one-year professional experience through a National UN Volunteer (UNV) assignment with UNICEF, while also imparting their valuable insights into the organization’s work for children and young people.

The recruited Youth Advocates will have access to learning and professional development opportunities, including a suite of online learning programmes. Young professionals with disabilities and from under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply. If you are 18-35 years of age and passionate about children´s rights, check out the assignment opportunities listed below.
