Individual Membership


Dear youths, activist friends and colleagues,

Unfortunately applications are closed to join our International Working Group! Keep an eye out on our social media for the next opportunity to join (we usually open up applications at the start of the year). If you have an interest in engaging in the work of Youth RISE you can contact our Executive Director at

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 and other young key populations 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.

Youth RISE is an equal opportunities organization which promotes diversity and as such we encourage members of all key affected populations to apply.

Kind regards,

Youth RISE Management Team
