We know young people have the power to solve the challenges we face in our world, but they are being side-lined. We are the agency that works with young people so they can lead in solving those challenges. Whether that means supporting communities to end child marriage or prevent HIV, we work with young people to change their lives and the lives of people in their communities. Our programmes are genuinely life- changing, but we can’t do any of this without talented, creative individuals at every level of our organization.


In this moment of rapid change we want to understand how youth civil society is being affected by the COVID-19 crisis. The main research question behind this project is: How is youth civil society responding to the COVID-19 crisis?

We are looking for co-researchers with a passion for youth activism, community engagement, and youth participation. Through a process of collective research, the group of 12 co-researchers from all over the world will be invited to research and reflect over the values and messaging behind the youth response to the COVID-19 crisis.

Through the research process, you will have the possibility of connecting with a group of other young people from all over the world and share your lived experiences so as to collectively make sense of the current crisis and its implications for youth-led groups and movements. In the process, you will experience the values and principles of participatory research.

Ultimately, the research will result in the writing of the first ever State of Youth Civil Society, published by Restless Development in collaboration with The Development Alternative and Recrear International. The document will provide recommendations to advise governments on what should be in place to support youth-led responses and recovery.
