Call for Country Coordinators for International Youth Alliance on Family Planning

Deadline: January 10, 2014

The International Youth Alliance on Family Planning (IYAFP)  is pleased to announce that they are now accepting applications for Country Coordinators to help move the Alliance forward. If you are a Youth from anywhere in the world and you believe you’ve got what it takes, you may apply!


Youth delegates from around the globe, motivated by the momentum at the International Conference on Family Planning held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in November 2013, launched the International Youth Alliance on Family Planning. Their mission is to establish networks with existing stakeholders to create an accessible platform that will allow youth from around the world to contribute a significant voice in the international scale on family planning and sexual and reproductive health.


Country coordinators will:

  • Recruit national Alliance members and form a strategic direction for national teams for campaigns, advocacy and activities
  • Create and lead a national leadership team to materialize the short-term goals of the Alliance
  • Work closely and communicate regularly with the IYAFP Vice Chair of Country Coordinators
  • This is a volunteer role that will take 3-5 hours of commitment per week. If you are looking to sharpen your leadership skills, meet and collaborate with national and international partners, and are looking for a platform to support your development as a youth leader, then this role is for you!

Final selections will be made by the end of January. Applicants may be chosen for interviews.
