Amnesty International invites application for the Youth Task Force Volunteer. The purpose of the Youth Task Force is to refresh Amnesty’s broad theory of change – working through the approaches and the tactics it must deploy to achieve change.

The Task Force will also work collaboratively with other internal groups to help guide the drafting of Amnesty’s new global strategy.
Further, the volunteers of the Youth Task Force will consist of a group of up to 15 youth leaders aged 18-24. The volunteers will be from both within the Amnesty International movement and also from outside (external) organizations and partners. Amnesty will select two participants from within its existing Global Youth Collective.

The interpretation will be on the basis of the composition of the group to ensure full participation and inclusivity.
