The PACT is currently accepting new members! If you are a youth-led or a youth-serving organization or network working on HIV or sexual and reproductive health and rights, join us and take part in a youth-led force for change! This call for members will be open until May 26, 2017.
Organizations must demonstrate a strong commitment to youth advocacy and youth participation in HIV and SRHR programming and advocacy (at least two years experience in the field is desirable). Regional and global advocacy is a bonus, but not required.
Organizations must work on the principles of human rights, diversity, and gender equality. Commitment to work with key populations of young people is desirable.
Youth-led organizations will be prioritized. Organisations which are not youth-led should strive to appoint representatives under 30 to sit on The PACT’s working groups.
Representatives of the organizations must be able to communicate in English.
Members must be willing to support representative to dedicate at least 2 hours per week to PACT workgroup activities. These activities include calls and meetings, and contributions on Basecamp, our online communication platform.
Members must agree to adhere to our six values (see here).
