ONE Youth Ambassador

Do you want to get more involved in the fight against extreme poverty? Develop new skills in creating change? And join hundreds of other young people for Europe-wide activism?
The ONE Youth Ambassador programme is entering its fourth year in Belgium, and we’re looking for passionate campaigners to join us for 2017. This year presents a great opportunity 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.
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 our 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. It’s your chance to truly define yourself as a ONE campaigner.
This ambassadorship is not a full-time or paid role. It is a volunteer role that should not take more than a few hours of your time every week. There will be monthly meetings, a launch event, a pan-European summit and a close out event which you are expected to attend.
To apply, please submit your CV and cover letter to yabelgium@one.org before 23.59 January 31st 2017.
Ambassadors will have access to a range of campaign and advocacy tools and products, and will receive support to design and develop their own action plans. Ambassadors will be expected to deliver a range of actions including but not limited to:
  • Writing to and meeting your political representatives;
  • Lobbying members of the European Parliament, European Commissioners and other influential figures;
  • Meeting with decision-makers, movers and shakers;
  • Using social media to raise awareness and create change;
  • Organising and delivering local events and presentations;
  • Writing letters to newspapers and possibly appearing on the radio or TV;
  • Recruiting new ONE members and attending ONE events.
Successful Youth Ambassadors will have:
  • A passion for the eradication of extreme poverty and an interest in international issues;
  • Great communication and teamwork skills;
  • Willingness to attend a programme induction and training in person in Brussels in March;
  • Ability to build and maintain relationships and great people skills;
  • Ability to encourage and support others;
  • Strong organisational skills with the ability to organise own workload efficiently;
  • Ideally some experience of working with young people in schools or through youth groups;
  • A good level of written and spoken English;
  • Age requirement: between 18-35 years of age but we encourage young-minded +35ers to apply;
  • We are looking for Youth Ambassadors of any European nationality, living in Belgium.
In addition to the many benefits and rewards that come with working in development, we will offer:
  • A clear set of objectives and deliverables with a written summary of achievements awarded on completion of the programme;
  • Regular online and offline training in areas including campaigning, advocacy, and media;
  • Being part of a group of 50 Youth Ambassadors in Brussels from all over Europe and Belgium and a Europe-wide network of over 300 young activists;
  • The opportunity to attend exciting events, including a Europe-wide event for all 2017 Youth Ambassadors.
About the ONE Campaign
ONE is a grassroots advocacy and campaigning organisation with more than 7.5 million members worldwide that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. We raise public awareness and pressurise political leaders to support smart and effective policies and programmes that are saving lives, helping to put children in school and improving futures. We hold world leaders to account for the commitments they’ve made to fight extreme poverty, and we campaign for better development policies and more effective aid. We also support greater democracy, accountability and transparency to ensure policies to beat poverty are implemented effectively. ONE is not a grant-making organisation and we do not solicit funding from the general public.
At ONE, we’re not asking for your money, we’re asking for your voice.
To apply, please submit your CV and cover letter to yabelgium@one.org. Applications close 23.59 January 31st 2017. Applications must be in English.
