The overall goal of the regional youth consultations is to provide a collaborative, open and inclusive space to leverage and foster meaningful participation of young people in the fight against corruption in Africa.  It is expected that the consultations will provide actionable recommendations on meaningful youth engagement in the prevention and fight against corruption amongst others. 

Applications are open for interested participants to take part in the three regional consultations scheduled for July and August 2018 in Tunis, Tunisia;  Dakar, Senegal; and Gaborone, Botswana.

Participants will be selected on the basis of their submission from an open call using the following selection criteria:

Thank you for yet another opportunity and platform which brings young Africans from across the continent together to shape ideas and thoughts on how to achieve development that is sustainable. My question is that on the part of the form that calls for submission of CV, there is no space where the CV can be uploaded, so I created a drive for the CV and input the link. Is this acceptable?

Dear Team,

I have tried to apply for the youth consultation but failed to upload my CV online...
Is there any other way to apply rather that using online Google forms.

Regards,

Hello everyone,
I have just a question about how to appload the motivation letter and the resume. Am I going to write them down in the space left in the application itself or there is another way to do that?
Hope I get a response before the dead line. I know that it is to day but I had some occupations that prevented me from applying before. I have everything ready I need just to know what to do
My apology
Thx in advance

Dear Sir / Madam, greetings from Addis Ababa, I saw your call for application for the regional youth consultation. The deadline which was mentioned was May 30, but when I try to acces the registration it is already closed. I think if it was to be may 30 it should have been opened until the end of May 30 time(23:59).

Kind regards
