Deadline: February 10, 2019

Applications are now open for the United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme and UN Population Fund (UNFPA) Young Innovators Fellowship Programme for 2019. This programme will provide young people (aged 18-29) with the opportunity to engage in a structured programme to drive innovation, creativity and to deliver concrete results in UNFPA.

Enabling young people to realize their full social, economic and human potential is a key aspect of this UNV-UNFPA partnership.

The fellowship programme provides an opportunity to bring 14 young people into UNFPA with a dedicated focus on both providing a youth perspective and driving innovation.

Selected fellows would join UNFPA headquarters in New York for two months, where they would undergo a dedicated leadership training. Two of the Young Innovators will remain as international UN Volunteers for a further six months at UNFPA headquarters in New York; these two HQ positions are open to applicants of all nationalities. The other 12 Young Innovators will return to their home countries, where they will complete six-month national UN Volunteer assignments in UNFPA Country Offices (and must be nationals of these countries).

Eligibility

Recruitment will focus on innovative young people from around the world who have demonstrated commitment to development issues within their communities as UN Volunteer Young Innovators.
