The Women Deliver Young Leaders Program connects outstanding young advocates with the platforms, the people, and the resources that can amplify their influence on a larger scale.

With an emphasis on sexual and reproductive health and rights, Women Deliver elevates the work of young people taking a stand for gender equality.

The 2020 Class of Women Deliver Young Leaders participates in a two-year program, beginning in May 2020 and ending following the Women Deliver 2022 Conference.
Once on boarded, Young Leaders will have access to the program’s platforms, people, and resources.
Class of 2020 participants will also be offered access to scholarships to the conference, and upon successful completion of the program join the Women Deliver Young Leaders Alumni Network.

In order to meet the requirements of the program, applicants MUST:
1. Be between the ages of 15-28 at the start of the program (1 May 2020)
2. Be proficient in English
3. Have regular access to email and the internet
4. Have access to a bank account or PayPal account for sponsored opportunities

Women Deliver is interested in applicants from all stages and levels of advocacy work — whether that be through policy and advocacy, community organizing, journalism and media, law, academia, research, medical and healthcare provision, creative arts, or other relevant sectors.

Women Deliver will notify applicants with decisions by late April 2020, and the program will officially begin in May 2020.
