One opportunity a day keeps success coming your way.
Today's Opportunity

Youth Advocacy Network 2012-2013 Fellowship

Want to teach media advocacy in Cameroon?

Applications are currently being accepted for the Youth Advocacy Network (YAN) 2012-2013 fellowship position, which takes place September 1, 2012 - August 30, 2013.

The Youth Advocacy Network (YAN) is dedicated to empowering communities that are underrepresented in the local and global governance to advocate for issues of local relevance to an international audience by teaching young people how to effectively use available technologies.  YAN Fellows teach a unique Leadership and New Media Advocacy curriculum that incorporates leadership skills, email, social networking, web-based research and video production. Students are encouraged to develop an advocacy strategy for their chosen topic and to implement this strategy online, building a network of international support. Throughout the process students are learning technological skills that can be used in a variety of ways while also engaging in cross-cultural communication, both online and with YAN Fellows.
Fellows will:
  • Update and enhance current new media advocacy curriculum which includes lessons in email, social networking, web-based research, basic website design, podcasting and video production (20%)
  • Teach New Media Advocacy classes to young people a maximum of five afternoons a week and one weekend class (25%)
  • Maintain YAN's social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter and YAN blog) (20%)
  • Coordinate the YAN summer internship program for advanced students, including teaching a weekly advanced topics seminar for participants (June - August) 
  • Demonstrated ability to self-motivate and work independently
  • Previous experience in the developing world or a demonstrated interest in development
  • Previous experience working with young people
  • Knowledge of InDesign, Windows Movie Maker, podcasting and basic website design
  • Comfortable with difficult living conditions, including but not limited to hit-or-miss availability of electricity and running water
  • Advanced Information Technology skills and/or French skills desired
YAN fellows will receive housing and a modest living stipend during their stay in Cameroon.  Fellows are responsible for transportation, visa fees and travel insurance. 

Joint applications of two people wishing to work together encouraged.
Applicants should send cover letter, resume, writing sample (one short blog-style piece preferred) and link to a basic documentary-style video sample to ewildermuth@youthadvocacynetwork.orgApplication deadline is June 15, 2012.
