The EU-funded YPPA project aims to improve the enfranchisement, empowerment, and inclusion of youth in all levels of democratic participation at the national, regional and global scales. YPPA’s three-pronged approach is informed by the need for youth engagement and inclusion not only at national level, but beyond and above it. Young people view politics not as bounded by borders but cutting across them, as waves of trans-border youth movements during the Arab Spring and Colour Revolutions show well, while the most pressing challenges for youth –such as climate change, digitalisation or the job market– bring a global and regional scope into national politics.

Among main tasks and responsibilities:

  • Accompany youth organisations or grassroot organisations working on youth in Africa in the project development phase, through coaching and mentoring meetings, both online and offline
  • Regularly monitor the project implementation of the eventually contractualised projects, including administrative and financial support, and in general by coaching the participating organisation whenever necessary, and maintain a mentoring relationship.

Among the skills needed:

  • Project development skills, in particular EU project development
  • Strong project management skills, in particular EU project management, in terms of activities implementation and budget management
  • Proved experiences and capacity to coach and lead the grassroot organisations

Among the education, languages and tools required:

  • University degree in any field relevant to the position (international relations, diplomacy, project development/management, etc.)
  • Professional experience in any field relevant to the position
  • Perfect command of both English and French – both written and spoken (any additional language, particularly Arabic or other languages widely spoken in the African continent, is a plus).
