Call for Virtual YSAP Missions 2020
The group is calling for proposals for online missions in 2020. All GYA members, irrespective of whether they are a member of the YSAP working group, can apply. Each proposal should come from two GYA members, one from a developing country, the other from a developed country. For details of what is suggested and what kind of funding is available, please see the call here. The deadline for submitting a mission proposal is 10 September 2020. Information on how to apply can also be found in the document linked above.
The YSAP accomplishes its objectives by (1) serving as a medium to connect various GYA members who might have common interests and (2) locating money or funding opportunities to pay for the international activities. The YSAP currently operates with a budget from the GYA. The amounts are not comprehensive for a given Ambassador, but serve as financial assistance to complement other funds available for the Ambassadorships.
For an overview of YSAP, please watch Adewale Adewuyi (Nigeria) and John Malone (USA) present an introduction of the programme.
For a history of YSAP, please watch founder Steve Miller (USA) present the initial beginnings and early missions funded by this programme.
