The CORE Group recruitment process begins as vacancies close

Yesterday (12th February 2014) we officially closed the CORE Group Vacancies and began the recruitment process to find our new Coordinators of the Regions 2014-2016. This exciting post has grown and developed into a crucial group in the Global Youth Network for Road Safety.


In 2011, YOURS announced the establishment of the YOURS CORE Group which bolsters our Global Youth Network for Road Safety through the appointment of Coordinators of the Regions from around the world. The CORE Group act as YOURS' first point of call for their respective regions and help to expand the network as well as offer specialised support to the regions with regards to road safety issues.

The CORE group explain their roles and grouped them into three key areas of focus:

  1. The YOURS Global Youth Network for Road Safety: 'To improve what we currently have'- to expand, share more information about youth and road safety projects and create a thriving quality network.

  2. Coordination and Guidance: 'To improve what we currently do'- of youth and road safety initiatives in every region consisting of coordinating and guiding activities, YOURS capacity development programs and creating regional information hubs on youth and road safety activities.

  3. Advocacy and Promotion – 'To be heard and seen more' – for YOURS to have a known and heard network worldwide and to reach out to the media more frequently.

We are pleased to announce that we have received applications from EVERY region advertised and it is clear that competition will be high. Rest assured that we will find the best of the best to join us in the CORE Group.
