The Advocacy Academy is an activist youth movement of leaders fighting for justice and equality. We serve as the political home for grassroots youth organising and the catalyst for collective action. Our Advocates' lives have been directly shaped by living in an unjust world, and we exist to turn their anger into action.

We are young, dynamic, ambitious, and unapologetic, and we are looking for someone to join us who is as passionate as we are about building the world as it should be.

Every single decision at The Advocacy Academy is taken by our Advocates as part of a cyclical leadership model . After the Fellowship programme our young people continue to organise and grow with us, leading our programmes, working with our partner organisations, and launching campaigns as members of the Movement.

The Advocacy Academy are looking for a Head of Fellowship.
