ADVOCAY VOLUNTEER

The DfG Advocacy Program envisions a world where periods are never a problem. In order to make this vision into a reality, we focus on four main outcomes. These are:

The growth of the menstrual health field in terms of academia, research, and evidence.
The creation of policy environments that support menstruators to manage their periods with dignity.
The integration of menstrual health programming across different development sectors.
An increase in the number of influencers who champion menstrual health as a cause.
As a volunteer, you can play an important role in advancing these outcomes by working with the DfGI team to identify opportunities where your unique skill set can make a difference. This may look like volunteering on a specific project such as a research initiative, or helping us manage ongoing advocacy activities. Either way, we will work with you to identify a clear volunteer project and/or role.

As an advocacy volunteer, you will also have the opportunity to participate in three advocacy training sessions a year. During these sessions, you will hear the latest news about the global menstrual health landscape and gain tangible advocacy skills and tools. This will also be a platform where volunteers can share their advocacy experiences, progress, and challenges so that we can learn from one another and build connections.

To get started, please send an email to advocacycoordinator@daysforgirls.org with a copy of your resume and answers to the following questions:

Why are you interested in volunteering with DfG advocacy? Are there any particular areas of interest or experience that you have?
Are you interested in volunteering for a distinct project with a clear start and end date, or an ongoing volunteer role?
About how many hours per week are you available to spend on volunteer related work with DfG?
Where are you located?
We look forward to partnering with you!
