Youth Advocates Ghana (YAG) is nationally recognized youth-led non-political, Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) located in Nsawam in the Eastern Region of Ghana. Formed in 2011, it is registered with Registrar General’s Department (Registration No. CG 000722012) and with the Department of Social Welfare (Registration No. D.S.W/5450). YAG was formed out of the need to meet the challenges confronting children with respect to sexual abuse and its related consequences. It did so through awareness creation sessions and training programmes and counselling for affected children, their parents and communities.

For the past 8 years, YAG has scaled up its programmes and activities to cover domains like education (scholarship for children), and health (sexual and reproductive health). It has also expanded the target scope from the children to the youth, noting the challenges that especially confront the adolescent and young girls.

YAG has gained experience and credibility in these areas of programme implementation and have extended this to the international arena, currently accredited to International Youth Federation and serve as the Secretariat for the 2030 Youth Alliance and the host of the African Youth SDGs Summit, a continental platform promoting the active participation of the youth in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Agenda 2063 of the African Union. The next and 3rd African Youth SDGs Summit is due in June 2020.

Rationale and Assignment Context

Youth Advocates Ghana-YAG launched its strategic plan for the period 2019-2024 anchored on four strategic goals:

G1. Enable the youth/young people to make informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive health and ensure that their human rights are respected, protected and fulfilled

G2. Empower young people to participate and hold duty-bearers accountable to ensure equitable and sustainable services for children and youth

G3. Provide educational and skill (enterprise-based) support for the development of vulnerable children and youth

G4. Strengthen the organization’s capacity to effectively and efficiently plan and implement programmes and projects.

YAG during this strategic period will develop a three year-rolling plan with accompanying budget and resource mobilization plan. YAG, like many other NGOs/CSOs depends on development partners to finance its core activities. The over dependence on donor support could have negative impact in the event of reduction in donor support. Consequently, a significant amount of resources including time would be devoted developing fundraising strategy for implementation. As part of this process, YAG is looking for someone with expertise and experiences to work alongside our staff and volunteers to identify sources of funding in-country and external to develop capacity for proposal writing towards accessing these funds and explore other private and income generation activities for self-reliance.

YAG is aware of the enormous challenges that affect adolescents and youth, especially young girls in poor and traditional households and communities. YAG is aware that working alone on these challenges will not be easy and she cannot make any significant dent on the challenges with even if it has all the resources available. However, working together with organizations, both national and international, who share in values and approaches, could make significant impact on these challenges, drawing on their areas of strength to complement each other’s efforts. To this end YAG will form strategic partnerships and work in strategic alliances to undertake fundraising through proposal development, organize joint education and advocacy programmes among others to address challenges adolescents/youth faces in this country.
