Monday August 12th is International Youth Day! This year’s theme is “Youth Migration: Moving Development Forward.” To celebrate, we’re highlighting just a few of the near 13,000 jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities concerning youth and migration on Idealist.

Passionate about migration issues?

Want to work with youth?

  • If you’d like to work directly with youth, consider Legal Outreach in New York; they need part-time teachers and tutors.
  • Fire up your brain and your muscles by coaching for America SCORES, an after school program for elementary and middle school children that combines soccer, literacy, creative expression, and service to empower kids. There are chapters across the U.S. looking for coaches as well as administrative staff.
  • Reading Partners is another nationwide after school literacy program, and they’re looking for managers, directors, and volunteer reading tutors.
  • Over in Florida, you can volunteer with Growth from Grief to help support children dealing with the loss of loved ones through uplifting, positive activities and experiences.
  • Or, if you’re a student looking to make a difference in Illinois, you can join the Y.O.U. Impact Fellows Program and provide low-income youth with after school programming, mental health counseling, mentorship, and more.

In addition to the above, there are always thousands of teaching, mentoring, and counseling opportunities on Idealist that can get you out and helping the youth in your community!

Need opportunities for young people to get involved?

Of course we can’t leave out opportunities for youth on International Youth Day!

So, no matter where you are in the world, we hope you get to celebrate the day by supporting and spending time with the children and teens in your community.
