The Youth Advisory Group – what is it and what will it do?
AIA’s Youth Advisory Group will be a group of 14 young Amnesty International activists between the ages of 18 and 24 who work with us to share ideas, help us to come upwith great activism elements for our key campaigns, work on specific projects and participate in discussions that will help to guide Amnesty International Australia’s work. Amnesty International Australia is currently undertaking a review of its democratic structures as part of a Strengthening Democracy project, and wants to ensure that young activists can participate in this important piece of work. This will be one of the key projects for the group this year (but there'll be lots of other stuff too).
How do I apply?
Recruitment for the advisory group will be done by application process (so, unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that all applications will be successful). A selection panel made up of regional and national staff and activists will select the successful applicants.
Deadline: 4th June 2009
For more information, and a copy of the selection criteria and application form, e-mail Ruby Johnson at Ruby_Johnson@amnesty.org.au
