AYANA International ( is a youth-led, California-based nonprofit dedicated to empowering youth in the developing world to harness their potential as changemakers by identifying and solving problems in their communities. We're empowering the next generation of social innovators in developing countries through innovative programs designed to stimulate empathy and problem-solving skills.

The AYANA Youth Innovation Incubator Program is a 5-hour-long research, innovation, idea development, and presentation curriculum that allows youth to identify problems in their communities and come up with solutions. We have reached 300 young people through our Youth Innovation Lab programs in 6 cities in Africa -- the projects designed by youth which we have funded have reached thousands of individuals.

If you want to be a part of a youth-led organization changing how we think about development and creating a sustainable and equitable future for all, join us! Check out our blog at and see if you'd be interested in contributing.

About the Position: Our copy and blog writing teams will work to work on projects like creating a portfolio page of our various programs in 5 African cities, using transcriptions of our Youth Innovation Lab programs and compiling various spreadsheets, Google docs, images, and other inputs into outputs of outstanding written content for our audience. This is a flexible position in which you can take on articles based on your interest and capacity, whenever you can. Learn more about our work on our website to see if you think this would be a good fit for you and your interests!

If you have skills in an area outside of writing (i.e. fundraising, website design feedback on our current site at, strategy, etc.) or would like to run an AYANA program in your city, whether in the US or internationally, please be in touch.
