Become a member

Who can become a member?

Anyone between the ages of 18 and 29 who support our principles and values is welcomed to apply to become a member. YCSRR accepts members from different backgrounds, with varying skills and experiences. We accept up to two members per country. As our working language is English, members must possess advanced listening, speaking, reading, and writing English language skills.

YCSRR recognizes the contribution and crucial perspectives that individuals from marginalized communities bring to our team. People including, but not limited to, those from the following groups are encouraged to apply: Indigenous peoples, women, mothers, single parents, immigrants, protected persons and refugees, people of color, lesbian, bisexual, gay, two spirit, transgender, gender non-conforming, gender fluid, non-binary, agender, genderqueer, and questioning people, intersex people, people living with disabilities, and those marginalized on the baiss of class, caste and HIV status.

What does being a member mean?

The Youth Coalition for Sexual and Reproductive Rights (YCSRR) is a youth-led and member-driven organization and as such relies on an active membership. We require that all members check and respond to emails at least a few times each week, take on specific tasks and contribute substantially to discussions and organizational decisions. The continuation of membership is dependent upon satisfactory fulfilment of these roles, and members are required to apply for renewal every two years.

What is the time commitment?

As the YCSRR relies on an active volunteer membership, members are required to devote a minimum of 7-10 hours per week to YC activities, which includes responding to emails, contributing to online discussions and taking part in our planned activities. Please note that most of our work is done virtually and takes place via an interactive online platform called Podio, as well as through email and Skype.

What does a member do?

Overall, the work that we do is focused on advocacy at the international level. Specifically, our members attend international conferences and meetings where they advocate for youth sexual and reproductive rights. We also develop advocacy strategies, create publications and organize trainings on specific issues such as abortion rights and youth participation.
