About AYEDI

AYEDI is a grassroots organization led by Afghan-Canadian youth, for Afghan-Canadian youth. The first of its kind in Canada, AYEDI is a non-partisan organization that works to build civic engagement and social development amongst Afghan-Canadian youth. We were founded on a belief that Afghan youth can play an active role in creating short- and long- term change for our diaspora. Our mission is to build community capacity, provide enriched programming activities and opportunities, and support inclusive engagement and advocacy. 

AYEDI’s programs and initiatives are rapidly growing, from our next round of our award-winning Afghan Youth Mentorship Program to our advocacy for Afghanistan. We are seeking motivated and passionate individuals to join our team to further amplify our impact.

This is a great opportunity for you to contribute towards building a powerful movement of young Afghan-Canadians creating sustainable change in our diaspora.

All positions are volunteer and mostly remote, with some in-person events and training. Please note that our in-person meetings and events are in Toronto.

All positions, except Advocacy Committee, require applicants to be in Ontario.

DEADLINE TO APPLY: Sunday, October 16, 11:59pm EST

Tips

Tips on deciding which positions to apply to:

If you have experience in organizing and are available 5-10 hours a week, we recommend applying for a Director position.

If you do not have significant experience but are passionate and would like to contribute; or if you have experience and are only available 5-10 hours a month, we recommend applying for a Committee position.

If you have higher level experience in specific areas and are interested in grassroots non-profit governance and strategic planning, we recommend applying for an Advisory Board position.
