Overview

The consultant will work closely with the Global Secretariat team and the Youth Reference Group to develop a comprehensive “Youth Leadership and Engagement strategy” for MenEngage Global Alliance. 


About MenEngage Global Alliance 

MenEngage Alliance is an international civil society network working to dismantle patriarchy through transforming masculinities and engaging men and boys through intersectional feminist approaches to advance women’s rights and gender justice for all. The Alliance consists of more than 700 member organizations across 70 countries, working together through 43 country networks and 6 regional networks. The Alliance plays a pivotal role in shaping the international agenda on work with men and boys from feminist perspectives, particularly in the areas of gender-based violence prevention, advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) for all, redistributing unpaid care-work, advancing peace and security, LGBTIQA+ Rights and Youth. The MenEngage Global Secretariat runs the daily operations of the Alliance.


MenEngage Alliance has identified youth leadership and engagement as a key focus area in recent years. The Alliance works together with the MenEngage Youth Reference Group, a group of young activists and leaders from across the regional networks, on all youth-focused activities. In order to further strengthen this focus area across all pillars of its work, based on the learnings so far, and to inform the development of its next strategic plan for the years 2021-2024 the Alliance is now seeking to develop a comprehensive MenEngage Youth Leadership Strategy.
