The applications for the CIVICUS Youth Action Lab 2020 have opened. Interested candidates can apply until February 5, 2020.

The Youth Action Lab is a one-year co-creation lab for grassroots youth activists based in the global south. It works to support their movements to become more resilient and sustainable in their pursuit of a better world. The Lab is an innovative, safe, active, inclusive, collective, representative and connected space, online and physical for grassroots activists. It thoughtfully considers diverse contexts and ecosystems to resource them to flourish with their communities.

Young people are facing increasing barriers and threats to their activism. Youth-led movements are unable to access sustainable resourcing, lack the technical capacity and networks to engage with political systems, and continue to work in silos, separated from other movements and activists across geographies, movements, and causes. Therefore, the Lab will act as a hub for testing new ways of working within civil society and mobilizing learnings from across
sectors in support of youth-led movements.


The short-listed participants will receive the following benefits from the CIVICUS Youth Action Lab

 1)Accessing Resources

The participants will get a microgrant of up to $2499 USD. Also, they will get access to in-kind support and other non-financial resources as well as strengthen capacity in order to support more sustainable and resilient movements.

2) Developing Strategy

In addition to that, the Lab will provide opportunities for capacity strengthening through peer-to-peer learning, coaching, and skill-building workshops with the aim of supporting youth activists to be more strategic and targeted in their campaigning.

 3) Building Alliances

Furthermore, it will create spaces for movements and collectives of young people to connect, share experiences, and heal together, in order to build stronger alliances and more connected movements
