Accountability Advocates Application Form

In partnership with Plan UK, African Monitor and YES Ghana, Restless Development is launching the Accountability Advocates project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.  The project will be implemented from April 2015 to June 2016 and has three broad aims:

1. To build the capacity of youth-led community-based organisations (CBOs) to hold governments to account effectively;

2. To demonstrate how, young people can lead, and partner with others in, the monitoring of the SDGs;

3. To promote the exchange of good practice and foster increased sectoral coordination and North-South cooperation.

To deliver this project, we are looking for 20 dedicated, connected and knowledgeable young experts from youth-led CBOs in Africa and Europe. Between May 2015 and June 2016, the 20 Accountability Advocates will be trained and mentored to design and implement a national monitoring framework that, together with a national alliance of young people, peer organisations and other youth partners, they can use to hold their government accountable to implementing the new SDGs.
