The AER, in cooperation with JEF Europe, are looking for 8 mentors to guide and support 8 groups of young activists from across Europe in the implementation of local and regional advocacy actions! Apply by March 24th!
As part of the “Y-FED: Europe is what we make of it” project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the EU, the AER, in cooperation with JEF Europe, has engaged in empowering youth in the European and regional political dialogues and, in turn, building a Europe that is closer to its young citizens.
To this aim, the AER has recently held a three-days online training on advocacy. 24 young activists have enhanced their knowledge of the European Youth Goals and the European Youth Strategy 2019-2027, how to actively participate in democratic and political life and develop and implement advocacy actions at the regional and local level. As the main result of the training session, young activists – in groups – have developed 8 advocacy plans addressing key obstacles to youth participation at the regional and local level.
What’s next? Become a Mentor for Young Activists!
After the development of the advocacy plans, young activists will have the chance to finalise and implement their planned advocacy actions and make their voice heard by regional and local authorities across Europe!
The AER and JEF Europe are now looking for 8 mentors to support and guide the young activists in the implementation of the advocacy actions from April to mid June 2021. Mentors are expected to:
- Support young activists in the finalisation of their advocacy plans;
- Provide mentoring to the young activists in the implementation of the advocacy actions at the local level;
- Inform and coordinate with the AER about the status of implementation of the advocacy actions;
- Outline a final report on the advocacy actions undertaken and outcomes achieved.
Please refer to the dedicated Call for Mentors for a detailed overview of the services and profiles required.
If interested, send your CV and Motivation Letter (max one page) to [email protected] AND [email protected] by 24th March 2021, including in the subject of the email ‘Call for Mentors – Implementing Local and Regional Advocacy Actions’.
Please, list and provide references for previous mentoring works you have performed.
