United Nations Volunteers Regional Office: Asia and the Pacific invites young people in the ASEAN countries to join the challenge! Under the theme “Impact ASEAN”, Youth Volunteering Innovation Challenge (YVIC) supports young volunteers to catalyze youth-led innovation for social impact and sustainable development by providing access to mentors and capital they need to scale up their projects.
We are looking for teams from ASEAN countries whose projects have already been prototyped and are in the implementation and growth stage. 10 teams will be selected to receive further technical support during the regional workshop in June in Bangkok, Thailand. After the workshop, 3 winning teams will receive funding worth up to 10,000 USD and mentorship for the duration of 3 months.
If your projects address one or more of the following focus areas, don't forget to apply by May1, 2017!
