About one year ago, we both made a decision that we have yet to regret – to apply to become a Youth Delegate. Adventurous, curious as well as ready to take on new challenges, we dreamt about working for the Red Cross in a new context and new national society. Now, we are almost halfway in our mission in Madagascar and, still, we discover and learn new things about ourselves, personally and professionally, about the community we live in, Madagascar, youth engagement and the Red Cross Movement. In other words, being a Youth Delegate gives you the opportunity to work with development - in local Red Cross youth activities, with youth volunteers and of course personally. Does this sound like something for you? Then, do not miss the opportunity to apply to become the next Youth Delegate!
The application process differs between the countries who are a part of the Youth Delegate Exchange Programme but in all cases, it is important to have Red Cross experience and be between the age of 21 and 28. If you are a Red Cross volunteer from Madagascar, check out this link if you are interested in becoming a Youth Delegate. Potential applicants from Norway can read more about the Youth Delegate Exchange Programme and how to apply for the position as a Youth Delegate here.
We encourage everyone who fulfil the qualifications to apply and are very happy to answer any questions regarding how it is to be a Youth Delegate. Good luck:)
