Amnesty International Youth Task Force 2019 in UK

Applications are now open for the Amnesty International Youth Task Force in the United Kingdom!

Amnesty is in the process of designing a new global strategy to become a larger, bolder and more inclusive movement. The design process will be extended to the Amnesty World Assembly in July 2020 and will be facilitated by the Global Impact Strategy Program (GSIP) at the International Secretariat. The process will involve listening to a wide range of stakeholders to help inform the future direction of Amnesty International. The Youth Working Group will be one of the key groups to help translate the results of the global consultation into Amnesty’s new strategy. For more details on the design process, see his blog #NextStrategy.


The purpose of the Youth Working Group is to update Amnesty’s broad theory of change, working through the approaches and tactics it must implement to achieve change. Using the comments received in the previous phases of the design process, the Youth Working Group will propose models and options to guide Amnesty International’s long-term influence strategy. The Working Group will also work in collaboration with other internal groups to help guide the drafting of Amnesty’s new global strategy.

The Youth Working Group will be composed of a group of up to 15 youth leaders aged between 18 and 24, both from the Amnesty International movement and from external (external) organizations and partners. Two participants will be selected within the current Amnesty World Youth Collective.

Members of the Youth Task Force will participate in a 3-day workshop in London, United Kingdom, from October 28 to 30, 2019. During the workshop live interpretation of up to 3 languages ​​will be provided according to the composition of the group to guarantee the full participation and inclusiveness.

Prior to the workshop, members of the Youth Task Force will be asked to participate remotely in approximately 3 interpreted preparatory meetings and in online spaces to prepare and help guide other elements of the strategy design process. Several materials will also be prepared to support the Working Group, including a detailed report on the outcome of the global consultation. As the design process evolves, the Working Group could be convened at other times between October 2019 and July 2020. See the official link for more details. Apply now!
