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.
COMMUNITY GROUPS ORGANISER
We are recruiting a dynamic Community Groups Organiser to support the growth and development of the 100 Million campaign worldwide.
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 Community Groups Organiser will do this by inspiring the formation of, and support existing, 100 Million Community Groups to take collective action that demands the rights of every child, both locally and globally.
100 Million Community Groups are formed and led by young people, usually in their schools, colleges, universities or local communities. The groups create and run local campaigns to effect change for the most marginalised children, targeting local government representatives, community leaders, and other influential figures which have a bearing on children’s rights locally or nationally.
The Community Groups Organiser will work with the Global Secretariat to develop and implement a strong engagement and support strategy for the campaign’s community groups, including campaign ideas, campaign packs and resources, and regular communications. They will also work closely with our Activist Training Manager to support the creation of training that responds to the community group network’s needs and priorities. We strongly believe in shared learning and knowledge, and the Community Groups Organiser will facilitate ongoing connection and collaboration between community groups, nationally and globally, regularly sharing content and examples of action across the network.
