The Youth Peace Initiative (YPI) is a young and dynamic organisation that facilitates youth in conflict areas to participate in the peace process. It does so by organising international conferences, currently focussing on Israeli and Palestinian youth as well as young Syrians that live in The Netherlands. Additionally, YPI sets up lectures for Dutch and international youth in the Netherlands to engage with peace issues.
At the moment YPI is looking for a Programme Officer in the Netherlands whose main tasks consist of organising workshops and conferences in the Netherlands for Israeli and Palestinian youth and actively searching for new opportunities and activities for YPI and its participants. YPI is looking for a confident and proactive team member with a strong
work ethic and strong organisation skills.
As YPI work relies on trust and impartiality, YPI encourages people to apply with an open disposition and an affinity for diplomatic representation. In return YPI offers you the opportunity to help create a new generation of peacemaker, apply your creativity, and expand your network in international relations.
Please note that this concerns a voluntary part-time position (10 hours per
week on average).
