Call for Application: Euro-Africa Youth Summit 2012 #BritishCouncil #GlobalChangeMakers #youth

After celebrating their fifth anniversary last week, Global Changemakers is moving on to its next milestone: this year’s Euro-Africa Youth Summit, which will take place in Brussels on 24-30 June.

Are you interested in participating as a volunteer or facilitator? Then read on! Application is between Monday 30 January 2012 and ends Sunday February 19th, 2012.

The profile for those eligible to apply is as follows:

For Volunteers:
·      Social entrepreneurs, community activists and volunteers aged 18-24 (on 24 June)
·      They must not have taken part in any previous Global Changemakers summits
·      They must be able to communicate comfortably in English
·      They must be residents of a country in Europe or Sub-Saharan Africa

You will find the call for applications here:

(If you were selected for a previous summit but were unable to attend, and if you meet the criteria above, you may reapply for this specific summit.)

For Facilitators:
Also, the summit is looking at recruiting ten peer facilitators – who must have taken part in a Global Changemakers summit, but they needn’t be from the two regions specified. If you’re interested in becoming a peer facilitator for the event, haven’t taken part in one of the previous summits as a peer facilitator and are aged 18-25 on the first day of the summit, you can apply here:

Deadline is Sunday, 19 February 2011. Please spread the word!
NOTE: As the website has been fighting with the increased number of visitors since yesterday, the organisers have their web developers looking into ways of increasing the site’s stability.
British Council will cover all costs (i.e. travel, visa, accommodation, meals, training costs) for the selected participants.
