The International Planned Parenthood Federation Africa Region (IPPFAR) is one of the leading sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) service delivery organizations in Africa, and a leading sexual and reproductive health and rights advocacy voice in the region through its 40 Member Associations and Collaborative Partners in 40 Sub-Saharan countries. For more information, please read our 2021 profile (in English and French) here.
IPPF Africa Regional Office (IPPF ARO) appreciates the fact that almost 60% of Africa’s population are youth under the age of 25, and it is committed to provide a framework by which individuals from diverse academic or life backgrounds may be assigned to the IPPF Africa Regional Office where their educational experience can be enhanced through practical work assignments, exposure to an international environment and the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and understanding of what IPPF does and stands for.
Since 2003, the IPPF ARO Youth Internship Programme has attracted several highly talented and motivated young people who seek to contribute to the realization of IPPF's priorities and strengthen their commitment as youth advocates in SRHR as well as their professional skills.
The Youth Internship Programme targets African youth students and recent graduates, including the Youth Action Movement (YAM) members. Its main objective is to support, nurture and enhance the skills of youth in programming, leadership and advocacy through hands-on experience, mentoring and coaching.
The IPPF ARO Youth Internship Program is therefore focused on strengthening and developing the interns' knowledge and skills. The intern is at the center of the process and all actions revolve around his/her professional development and commitment to contribute to the ARO's work.
To tell the story of this important internship, IPPF Africa Regional Office is seeking to recruit a Consultant Videographer to produce a video on the IPPF ARO Youth Internship Program, highlighting the quality and excellence of this programme as a strategy for youth empowerment and skills development.
