Beyond borders is a youth led, youth run voluntary organization engaged in social activism and a push for change. Our focus is on a wide array of issues ranging from identity, diversity to active global citizenship. We work through various media; organizing training sessions both outbound and inbound, hosting seminars and discussions, road shows and forum theatre.
We believe that it is time the youth had a say in how society is run. If you have big ideas (the more unconventional the better) and strong convictions but need a platform from which you can launch them; then Beyond Borders may be right up your alley.
We are currently looking for people to join as Core- group members of Beyond Borders. You will be involved in making the decisions that will determine the direction of Beyond Borders and decide the nature of the projects we will do. You will also get opportunities to organize and lead project teams and pursue work and social issues you are passionate about, together with the rest of the core group.
To join you have to be within the ages of 16 and 24 and be ready to put that passion and enthusiasm into ideas that you believe in! Also you will need to;
1.Email us to firstname.lastname@example.org a brief description of yourself, including your name (obviously), contact details, educational background, extra curricular activities (tell us what you did, not the groups you were a member of) and if you've worked anywhere, details of that. Keep the description to a maximum of 300 words.
2. Write 300 words on something you are extremely passionate about, or something you want to work on in your life. This is not a test of your writing skills; we just need to make sure that you will enjoy getting involved with BB. If you have an idea, but no idea how to implement it, you can write about that and we might provide you the platform to do so.
Deadlines have been extended to the 17th of September. Visit our website (www.beyondborders.lk) or our blog
