CALL FOR IN-COUNTRY PROJECT PROPOSALS FOR THE ASEAN YOUTH VOLUNTEER PROGRAMME

Submitted applications with accompanying concept notes should describe knowledge-driven youth volunteerism projects under one of the eight thematic areas: 

1.    Rural Development and Poverty Eradication
2.    Social Enterprise
3.    Youth-friendly Health Services
4.    Education Development
5.    The Environment
6.    Protecting ASEAN’s Heritage
7.    Disaster Response, Risk Reduction, and Recovery
8.    Sports and Recreation

In every project under these eight thematic areas, the AYVP Secretariat will provide a team of four to six (4-6) youth volunteers. These volunteers will come from different ASEAN-member states, and will help respond to the requested needs from the local communities over a two to three (2-3) month period. The volunteer programme aims to open these young volunteers’ minds to new livelihoods, perspectives, and cultures by working with community leaders and volunteers from other countries in ASEAN.

Project proposals must also substantiate the organization’s capability, trustworthiness, and experience in working with and using volunteers in their operations. The responsibilities of local implementing partners will vary by project, but at minimum, they must be able to provide:

  1. Identified room and board for volunteers
  2. An established in-country office with the necessary staff and capacity to handle day-to-day communication with the volunteers and AYVP Secretariat
  3. Capacity to handle orientation for the volunteers at project site
  4. Monitoring of volunteer assignments
  5. Coordination of reporting and final evaluation of the volunteer
  6. Transport of the volunteer from the closest airport to the project site

Funding Mechanisms

Proposals must indicate whether funding is provided or required to implement the project. It must also specify the number of volunteers needed. The AYVP will provide an allowance to each volunteer which will cover his/her expenses for the 2-3 month duration of the programme.


Deadline for submission of applications with proposals is February 15, 2013. Submissions and queries should be directed to the AYVP@AsiaEngage Secretariat at: ayvpsecretariat@asiaengage.org

The AYVP is implemented by the ASEAN Secretariat in partnership with the Ministry of Youth and Sports Malaysia, the AsiaEngage, and the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia.

The National Youth Commission is inviting government organizations, university-affiliated youth organizations, NGOs, and recognized foundations to submit project proposals to the ASEAN Youth Volunteer Programme (AYVP).
