The Youth Leadership Council is Expanding

During the past two months, the Youth Leadership Council undertook an important mission of engaging three new members to the Council. Commissioned to articulate and advance the needs of young peers, Youth Leadership Council aimed at ensuring diverse geographic backgrounds, identities, and experiences joining the team.

Seeking a more inclusive decision-making process and establishing good collaboration between GFC and Youth Leadership Council members we engaged three members from each team to the selection panel. “This was a participatory process allowing us, the Council members, to work hand in hand with GFC staff. We had a chance to interact more with our peer members of the Council and GFC staff during the selection, and we got to know each other better. It also allowed us to understand the views and opinions of young people from across the globe, and it was a learning experience,” shared Solomon Ndondo, Youth Leadership Council member.

We have received 107 applications from 36 countries and shortlisted 11 candidates to select 3 finalists. The panelists have made a decision based on the candidates’ background and experience, team building and networking skills, as well as their motivation to join the Council. Reflecting on the process, it was fairly difficult to make a selection among young and talented people, who represent great diversity, have reached several achievements and drive local and global social change.

After a thorough and participatory review of each application and interviews with the shortlisted young leaders, we will be happy to announce the three new members of the Council next week. We appreciate every application we received, panelists involved in the selection and would like to wish the new members a wonderful journey being part of the Youth Leadership Council.
