Rise Up’s Youth Champions Initiative

Young leaders contributing to the development of the sexual and reproductive health awareness are invited to apply for the Rise Up’s Youth Champions Initiative. This virtual incubator allows participants to launch their projects with an award of $12,000. The deadline is on Thursday 15th July 2021.

Rise Up’s Youth Champions Initiative invests in powerful young leaders ages 18-29 who are leading the sexual and reproductive health, rights, and justice movement in Ethiopia, India, Pakistan, Rwanda, and the United States. 

Following a competitive selection process, Rise Up will select visionary young leaders to join a cohort of 22 Youth Champions from India, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Pakistan, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

Rise Up has developed an innovative virtual incubator model that integrates intensive capacity building, leadership development, advocacy, project funding, and technical support to enable the youth champions to launch creative new initiatives to improve sexual and reproductive health and rights in their countries. 

Rise Up will competitively award $12,000 grants to participating Youth Champions and their organisations to launch innovative sexual and reproductive health and rights projects they develop during the Incubator.

Applicants are expected to participate in an online virtual workshop meeting weekly for two hours between October and December 2021. Rise Up will cover all costs related to programme participation, including materials and internet.

The deadline is on Thursday 15th July 2021.
