Alliance of Civilizations Youth Solidarity Fund
New York, April 16, 2008 (AOC) - To support youth-led initiatives that promote long-term constructive relationships between young people from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds, the Alliance of Civilizations last month launched a Youth Solidarity Fund.
The Fund will provide seed funding in amounts up to 20,000 USD to a very small number of outstanding youth-led projects in the following areas:
Intercultural and Interreligious Exchanges
Youth Leadership Training
Youth Voices in the Media
The Alliance of Civilizations places great emphasis on funding projects that have long-term outcomes and that connect youth from previously unconnected communities with a view to overcoming perceived or real cultural and religious divides.
2008 constitutes the pilot phase of this initiative. The AoC will only fund projects that are entirely managed by youth for the benefit of youth. The age definition used by the AoC is persons between 18 and 30 years old.
Youth organizations are subject to the same criteria as other partners of the UN system in that they must be accountable and transparent and refrain from all discriminatory practices. The following general eligibility criteria apply for all youth organizations that seek funding from the Youth Fund.
Applying organizations should be membership-based youth organizations (youth-led or primarily youth-serving) or a network composed of several such organizations;
Non-governmental (with the exception of national youth councils) organizations registered in the country of operation as a charity, trust, foundation, association and operational for a minimum of 1 year with funding base and project implementation;
Democratic governance structure and leadership nomination and standard consultative processes in formulating priorities and policies with members;
Ability to demonstrate proper and consistent record keeping of activities, including minutes and accounts;
Successfully employed monitoring and impact assessment (evaluation) of its activities and projects;
Gender perspective/balance reflected in staff and membership;
No adherence to or affiliations with violent ideologies or antagonism against any particular country, religion, ethnic group, race, color, or sex.
The deadline for submitting applications is 30 April, 2008. To request an application pack, please contact the AoC Secretariat.
