Create a Website for Young People We Care
Mission and objectives
YPWC is a youth led and youth focused organisation that is headquartered in Ghana, with additional satellite offices in the United Kingdom and Canada. The organisation is operated by a combination of young people (aged 10 to 35 years) and adult allies working on youth- and development-related issues worldwide. YPWC was founded in December 2005. The mission of YPWC is: to educate and inform youth on global issues; inspire them to take action; encourage youth participation in global issues; identify and build sustainable partnerships aimed at youth development; and provide young people with the tools and resources required for effective action. Its vision is to provide a ‘youthful voice’ that represents the youth of our world. By effectively using young resourceful minds to influence the course of global policy formulation and development in a consistent and harmonized manner, YPWC seeks to address the numerous challenges facing young people today. Herein lies the main strength of YPWC – it is an organisation led by young people, for young people. Based on the philosophy of participatory learning, YPWC inspires and supports youth action by creating a platform. This allows for youth to translate their knowledge and desires into action, whilst simultaneously involving young people in decision-making regarding key developmental and global issues.
YPWC has been serving young people around the world for the past 15 years on issues ranging from education to employment, and health. We are currently looking for a volunteer who can help us create a new website. By supporting our work you will be contributing to youth-related SDGs including Goal 2 (hunger), Goal 4 (education), Goal 5 (gender equality), Goal 8 (decent work). Moreover, volunteers will gain some understanding of youth development.
YPWC is searching for an experienced online volunteer who will help us to create a new website to promote our visibility and profile. This will involve creating the website using WordPress. YPWC staff will ensure that content is created for the volunteer to use on the updating of the website. While YPWC will provide information and guidance, the volunteer's main deliverable will be the completed website
