Job description

Are you passionate about children's rights?

Do you believe in the power of youth activism for social justice?

The 100 Million campaign is a call to action for a world where all young people are free, safe and educated. We support young people to mobilise to end violence against children, eradicate child labour, and ensure education, breaking the cycles of illiteracy, poverty and violence for good. Working in coalition with youth activists, representative youth organisations and partners across different sectors of civil society, 100 Million is fighting for the right to justice for the world's most marginalised children.

The campaign was inspired by the strength and impact of former child slaves who have now become successful activists and rescuers themselves, and co-founded by Nobel Peace Laureate and lifelong activist for children's rights, Kailash Satyarthi.

We are currently seeking talented individuals who have a strong belief in social justice and understand the role that representative youth activism can play in the fight for the rights of every child.


We are recruiting an experienced Activist Training Manager to support the global network of 100 Million youth activists through in-person and digital training, enabling them to understand child marginalisation and exclusion, and to support them to take collective action that demands the rights of every child.

The ultimate aim of all roles at 100 Million is to support youth activists on the ground to achieve accelerated policy change with local decision-makers for the world’s most marginalised children to realise their rights to freedom, safety and education. The Activist Training Manager will do this by leading the development of a comprehensive and continuous training programme which meets the needs of youth community activists worldwide.

Our youth activists operate in local Community Groups – based in schools, colleges, or local communities – and at the national level as members of our National Campaign Groups – which are usually coalitions comprised of youth organisations, NGOs, and trade unions. Working with our Head of Activism, the Activist Training Manager will determine the training needs of the 100 Million campaign’s global network of youth activists, write and pilot appropriate programmes which can be rolled out online and/or face to face, including via disseminated train the trainer programmes, and lead the delivery of training across staff and partners.

There is a wealth of experience across our network, and the Activist Training Manager will be expected to identify good practice both within our network and draw on their own experiences of working with activists and campaigners to build dynamic and engaging training programmes. They will also work with our Monitoring and Evaluation Manager to ensure our programmes are effective and making an impact on the development of the skills of youth activists, as well as on the achievement of results in communities.

Please see the full job description and person specification for detailed information on the role.

  • Submit a CV and covering letter detailing your experience and explaining how you meet the person specification by 5pm GMT on Sunday 3 November. Applications received after this deadline will not be considered.

The Global Secretariat is based in London, with national campaign staff based in the Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation in Washington, DC and in New Delhi.
