The Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC) is currently recruiting for a Darwin Coordinator. The Darwin Coordinator will be responsible for growing a grassroots AYCC group in NT’s capital as part of our national movement. This group will take part in AYCC projects and campaign on local issues.
This is a highly rewarding role for an extraordinary young person interested in taking action on the climate crisis and empowering others to do so too. You will build leadership, management, and communication skills, while being inspired by the dedication and ingenuity of those you work with.
The AYCC is Australia’s largest youth-run organisation, building a generation-wide movement to solve the climate crisis. Volunteering with the AYCC is one of the most effective steps a young person can take towards climate action. It’s also a special opportunity to connect with other young leaders and receive training and invaluable skills.
Right now, over a billion people live in extreme poverty around the world. Poverty means kids without access to schools and families without access to healthcare. Poverty is caused by broken systems. But the personal impact of poverty is people like you and I having to make impossible sacrifices each day.
The roadtrip is bringing together over 1000 of Australia’s most passionate young people who will be trained to become leaders and ambassadors for the cause. From 9th-16th of March 2013, young people will roadtrip from all corners of the country, calling on Australians to do their fair share in the fight to end extreme poverty. This is your chance to be a part of it. Apply to be an Ambassador!
