Welcome to the YouAct website, European Youth Network on Sexual and Reproductive Rights
YouAct is a European network of young people, who are active in the field of Sexual and Reproductive Rights. Since its launch in Lisbon 2004, YouAct has grown into a widely recognised youth organisation, undertaking key advocacy, training and awareness raising activities on national, European and International levels.
YouAct works to empower young people to take an active role in their communities and organisations and to advocate for Sexual and Reproductive Rights as Human Rights. We believe that decisions which affect young people should be planned and formed by young people themselves. Young people should be taken seriously as capable and productive individuals. Meaningful Youth Participation in the designing, development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies, programs and services aimed at young people, is crucial for their success.
We believe that active and meaningful youth participation is essential to reach the following goals: We envision a world where sexuality is accepted as a positive aspect in life and where the SRHR of young people are realised: young people have access to accurate information and youth friendly services and can decide freely and responsibly about all aspects of their sexuality and reproductive lives.
Are you a young SRHR advocate? Are you ambitious? Did you manage projects before? Are you good at managing your time? Join us and become the Coordinator of YouAct! We are the European Youth Network on Sexual and Reproductive Rights and we are looking for a part-time network coordinator. Who are we & what do we have to offer?
