USAID CECA Digital Youth Council Application
Thank you for your interest in serving on the USAID CECA International Youth Digital Leadership Council ("Digital Youth Council")!

What is the Digital Youth Council?

The Digital Youth Council is a 12-member council of young leaders between the ages of 16 and 24 years who are working on issues related to digital platforms and safety, and who are interested in reducing digital harm for children and youth.

Members will work together with the US Agency for International Development (USAID) to advise, inform and advocate for greater protection from digital harm, hereby strengthening the next generation of digital changemakers and advocates. Council members are expected to start in March 2021 and serve for one year with the possibility of extension for a second year.

The Digital Youth Council is supported by YouthPower2: Learning and Evaluation (YP2LE), a USAID-funded activity focused on building and disseminating the evidence on Positive Youth Development (PYD).
