Young Humanists International is happy to announce the appointment of the four new Regional Coordinators:
During their term, Regional Coordinators will be responsible for liaising on a regional scope, maintaining good relationships, executing the Young Humanists International annual work plan, and building resilient networks of young humanists in the Region.
Anya Overmann, President of Young Humanists International, commented:
“We have an excellent new team. We have four passionate Regional Coordinators who are excited to get to work growing humanism in their regions and advocating for youth. Prepare to witness Young Humanists International bloom!
“Young Humanists International will also be rolling out several initiatives this year including trainings, more grants, a robust blog series and social media plan, and a Young Humanist Faces project which will feature young humanist members and their stories from all over the world.”
Javan Lev Poblador, Young Humanists International Coordinator, said:
“On behalf of Young Humanists International, we want to thank everyone who submitted their applications. It was a pleasure to speak with young humanist leaders on their motivations for applying and hopes for the Region.
“I’m also grateful to the new Regional Coordinators. They have whole-heartedly accepted the new roles and are courageously committed to this challenge in realizing our vision at Young Humanists International.”
