Call for applications: UN-Habitat Urban Youth Fund mentorship programme

Deadline: 4 December 2014 - 12:00am


The United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) has kicked off a new and exciting opportunity for people who want to mentor youth-led organizations from around the world and help them to become active citizens in their communities and bring about global change.

The UN-Habitat Urban Youth Fund is dedicated to empowering global youth by providing grants and capacity building to selected organizations in developing countries. Yearly, more than 8,000 youth-led organizations apply for a grant of up to $25,000. Approximately 40 organizations were selected this year to receive a grant, training and ongoing support. These youth-led groups span various sectors, from technology and agriculture to governance, education and poverty reduction.

This is a unique opportunity for grassroots, experts and consultants to work with top youth groups globally, and take youth empowerment to the next level. As a mentor you will be an official part of our UN-Habitat Urban Youth Fund community, with access to a global network of emerging youth leaders.

For more information about this exciting new opportunity and the application process, please download and read the document.
