Holocaust Memorial Day is the day for everyone to remember the millions of people murdered in the Holocaust under Nazi Persecution, and in the genocides which followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur. It is a time when we seek to learn the lessons of the past and recognise that genocide does not just take place on its own - it’s a steady process which can begin if discrimination, racism and hatred are not checked and prevented.
We believe that by learning from the atrocities of the past, we can build a better future.

- Implement and ensure ways to optimise engagement of young people with HMD2020 Stand together, and future years’ projects
- Empower youth groups to engage with Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD), providing relevant resources and guidance
- Identify appropriate methods to measure youth group engagement with HMD, capture and analyse data, and produce detailed evaluations and reports
- Support a small group (of six to eight) youth spokespeople/representatives for HMDT so they contribute in the most effective way to achieving HMDT goals
- Establish and support a Youth Advisory Board, comprising senior representatives from national youth agencies and organisations
To join us as a Youth Development Officer, you will need:

- A track record of developing and maintaining stakeholder relationships to achieve an organisation’s strategy and objectives
- Proven experience of engaging widely with a broad youth audience through youth organisation leaders
