Dear youths, activist friends and colleagues,

Youth RISE is currently expanding its International Working Group. We encourage applications from young people who are interested in drug policy, and would love to work on related issues internationally as well as on the national level.

Our International Working Group (IWG) brings together around 15 young advocates and young people who use drugs from around the world. The group works together to represent their local and regional communities of young people who use drugs on the international drug policy arena, promoting evidence-based drug policies for youth, and contributing their skills and knowledge to network strengthening.

A likely candidate should be able to dedicate time and energy to team work, have knowledge and some experience in the drug policy field and be able to implement tasks independently. More information on the role of an IWG member can be found in the Terms of Reference here: IWG Terms of Reference 2018.

The deadline for applicants from the Latin America region has been extended until the 1st of February.

YouthRISE is an equal opportunities organization which promotes diversity and as such we encourage women, non-binary folk, and people of all genders to apply.

Kind regards,

Youth RISE Co-ordination Team.
