United Nations Volunteer (UNV) and United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has jointly opened the application for the Young Innovators Fellowship Program for the youth from various parts of the world. The fellowship will provide young people (aged 18-29) with the opportunity to engage in a structured programme to drive innovation, creativity and to deliver concrete results in UNFPA. The fellowship aims to provide these UN Volunteer Young Innovators with the tools, skill sets, international experience and exposure to innovation to empower them to realize their career goals, thus building national capacity. Fellows, in turn, provide innovative insights and ideas that will enable UNFPA to be better aligned with development issues in their community.
The fellowship programme provides an opportunity to bring 14 young people into UNFPA with a dedicated focus on both providing a youth perspective and driving innovation. Selected fellows would join UNFPA headquarters in New York for two months, where they would undergo a dedicated leadership training. Two of the Young Innovators will remain as international UN Volunteers for a further six months at UNFPA headquarters in New York; these two HQ positions are open to applicants of all nationalities. The other 12 Young Innovators will return to their home countries, where they will complete six-month national UN Volunteer assignments in UNFPA Country Offices (and must be nationals of these countries).
If you are a young person committed to bringing your innovative spirit and skills to UNFPA as a UN Volunteer in your country or at UNFPA headquarters, check out available assignments below:
