The UNAOC Youth Solidarity Fund (YSF) supports youth-led organizations that foster peaceful and inclusive societies by providing them with direct funding to implement their own projects promoting intercultural and interfaith dialogue. Established in 2008, the Fund responded to calls for action made by youth-led organizations around the world on the importance of establishing funding mechanisms for youth.

In addition to funding projects selected through a competitive call for proposals, the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) offers technical support and capacity building in order to further promote the development of youth-led organizations working to advance the UNAOC mandate.

Since 2008, UNAOC has launched five editions of the YSF and provided funding to 50 youth-led organizations based in Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe.

In the years 2015 – 2017, part of funding for YSF was provided to UNAOC by the Government of Finland. The donor’s contribution supported youth-led projects implemented by 12 youth-led organizations based in Africa and Asia. As part of the agreement concluded between Finland and UNAOC, the donor has requested to conduct an independent evaluation of the Youth Solidarity Fund programme in Africa and Asia covering the activities in years 2015 – 2017.  UNAOC is seeking a consultant to lead that evaluation.
