Event Manager for a Youth Activism Conference

Save to Favorites

The Weaving Lab

  • 7 people are interested

The Project:

Youth by Youth (YxY): A 3-day online dialogue series by young people for young people around the central question "What if young people designed the future of education?" taking place on January 22nd to 24th, 2021.

YxY is the first iteration of an annual event with the goal of creating a global community of youth activists working to influence and transform their education systems and learning from one another in this process.

Our desired outcomes are the following:

1)Activating and/or accelerating young people's conscious activism - How? By...

  • Learning from young activists that are impacting education for the better
  • Supporting them to recruit other people and create "Imagination & Action Circles"

2)Creating a connected cohort of passionate agents of change - How? By...

  • Creating opportunities for them to build friendships through aligned values, shared experiences, and openness
  • Enabling them to communicate, support, and learn with and from one another beyond YxY

3) Enabling young people to design and transform their education (from personal to systemic) - How? By...

  • Giving them the foundational tools to go from conversation to effective action, notably on how to influence different decision-makers (e.g. parent, teacher, school, policy)
  • Supporting and learning from one another's successes and challenges, to continuously become more effective as a learning community

The Role:

Your role as a YxY volunteer would be to support our team with event coordination and management. At present, there are over 40 confirmed sessions with young people and youth organizations from around the world. You might also support our effort to get funded (if we do, we aim to remunerate all our volunteers)
