An opportunity not to be missed!
This year, The Lancet launched a new Commission on Adolescent Health and Well-Being. This Commission has an academic core (University of Melbourne, Columbia University, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and University College-London) with an aim of building partnerships in research and training. It also involves those at the intersection between academia and policy making, practitioners and funders.
To ensure that young people themselves are represented, integrally involved in and contributing to its work, the Commission is seeking to add two young people as full members. These members will both contribute to the overall work of the Commission and help lead a section of the report on sustainable models for youth engagement and leadership.
The new commissioners will be expected to participate in two further in-person meetings of three days each over the next 18 months. They should expect to contribute around 10 – 15 hours per month during this time to the work of the Commission. All expenses associated with attending meetings of the Commission will be covered, and the youth commissioners will be eligible to receive a stipend for their participation.
