The Youth Compact Champions Programme 2020

50

Application Deadline: August 16th 2020

The youth compact champions programme will provide 18 months support, to 35 hard-to-reach Young Leaders (aged 18-30) who have been affected by humanitarian crisis and have experience of leading humanitarian action. These Young Leaders will:

  1. Support the design and evaluation of initiatives by the Compact to deliver on it’s 5 key actions (services, participation, capacity, resources & data).
  2. Mobilise over 1,000 young people around the world to engage in Compact initiatives, supporting over 100,000 people affected by humanitarian crisis. 

The Youth Compact Champions programme builds on the collective work, initiatives and passion of the Compact members to date, and is aligned to the Compact’s guidance on working with and for young people in response to the COVID-19 emergency. The programme is currently co-coordinated by the UN Major Group for Children & Youth, ActionAid and Restless Development with support from Compact members including Norwegian Refugee Council, War Child Holland and UNFPA. ActionAid have provided initial funding for the first phase of the programme until December 2020.

As we kick start the programme from June to December 2020, working on initiatives such as The Youth Fund, disseminating Compact guidance and youth capacity building, we aim to co-design the second phase of the project from January to December 2021 with partners who want to join the programme.

If you would like to join or support the Youth Compact Champions programme, please contact Craig Dean (Restless Development) at [email protected].

The Youth Fund is a new fund to support youth action around the world, where the decisions on which projects are funded are made by young people themselves.

The fund is supported by the UN Major Group for Children and Youth, ActionAid Denmark, Restless Development and developed in collaboration with UNFPA.

This first call for applications will focus on supporting actions taken by registered youth-led organisations tackling the impacts of COVID-19 as part of the Compact for Young People in Humanitarian Action’s Youth Compact Champions Programme.
