UNFPA And UN Volunteers Youth Innovation Fellowship Programme 2022

The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) in corporation with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) are calling on young and vibrant professionals for the application of its Youth Innovation Fellowship Programme 2022. UNFPA And UN Volunteers Youth Innovation Fellowship Programme 2022

About the programme

The Young Innovators Fellowship Programme provides young people (aged 18–26) from UNFPA-supported programme countries with the opportunity to engage in a structured eight-month programme to drive innovation, creativity, and capacity development and to deliver concrete results in UNFPA.

The Fellowship Programme provides an opportunity to bring 18 young professionals into UNFPA with a dedicated focus on both providing a youth perspective and driving innovation in UNFPA’s priority areas, including addressing unmet need for family planning, ending preventable maternal deaths, and ending violence against women and girls.

The Young Innovators will be engaged as National Youth UN Volunteers for a duration of eight months. At the beginning of the assignment, the Young Innovators will be invited to an online induction training organized by UNFPA. At the end of their assignment, they will attend a three-day capstone presentation session at the UNFPA headquarters to share their experiences and achievements and to receive Young Innovators’ certificates. The travel arrangements are subject to the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic.
