Pahichan-Youth Empowerment- Youth Leadership and Data
Call for Application
As part of the Youth Empowerment- Youth Leadership and Data Project, YUWA is looking for innovative and energetic youth to be evidence-based leaders of Nepal by empowering them on concepts of youth, their rights, leadership and skills, and the use of open data as evidence for youth-led and data-driven development. The Youth Empowerment- Youth Leadership and Data! The project is designed around the premise that if a network of young data leaders is formed, then these leaders can productively support the government at the local levels to make evidence-based decisions for the welfare of the community through the use of (open) data.
Youth Empowerment- Youth Leadership and Data! with an interactive approach, will focus on empowering youth at the local level about youth leadership and skills while centering on the role and importance of open data in applying the leadership skills in their community. The project aims to address evidence-based decision-making challenges of youths at the local level, in order to fill in the gap between youth and their potential to better understand causality of local issues and find appropriate solutions for them. With Nepal’s new federal structure, informed young leaders at the local level who can use open data to develop and implement community solutions as well as advocate for and support local governments are key.
Each participant will be asked to fill in the application form, and in the application form will be asked to highlight a problem in their community that they as leaders wish to find a solution for. From the pool of candidates, 40 youth will be selected from each of the 3 provinces. Participants will be selected from diverse backgrounds in terms of education, profession, age, ethnicity, and religion. The participants will be selected from nearby districts to ensure participation transcending geographical areas. Evaluation of the applicants will be based on their written application by a review committee. Youth from a wide range of backgrounds are highly encouraged to apply. Interested youth should fill out the attached form and submit it at the YUWA Office or send as an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
