Start a Revolution!
Are passionate for change? Do you think out of the box? Do you have plans, but don’t have a platform from which you can launch them? Then Beyond Borders is your place to be!
Who are we?
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, and last but not least forum theater.
We are currently looking for people to join us. As a Member, you will be involved in making the decisions that will determine the direction of Beyond Borders and will decide the nature of the projects we will do. You will also get opportunities to organize and lead project teams and to pursue work you may be passionate about.
Beyond Borders has been working closely with British Council Colombo in a variety of its projects, since its inception in 2005.
What do I have to do to join?
To join you have to be between the ages of 18 and 25 be keen, enthusiastic, and mostly importantly be ready to do work with passion for what you believe in. You will also 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.
