Get Involved




The World Youth Alliance volunteer opportunities give an opportunity for young people who are inspired by the ideas and work of the World Youth Alliance to contribute practically to WYA's projects and to experience the ideas of WYA at work. The type of projects available for volunteers to work on are diverse, and vary according to the calendar of events of the organization. 

New volunteer opportunities are added constantly so check back often.

What kind of volunteers are we looking for?

Ideal candidates possess a strong passion for the defense of human dignity. We seek committed members with strong communication abilities and organizational skills. Volunteers must also be able to motivate and inspire others, and love to bring people together. 

Time commitments and workload are flexible. Volunteers can pick the volunteer work that suits their schedule.

Volunteer work may also vary from requiring people to be physically present to work that can be done online, coordinated through Skype and submitted via email.

Who do I contact if I have general questions about volunteering at WYA?

Please e-mail if you have additional questions.
