About Restless Development

We know young people have the power to solve the challenges we face in our world, but they are being ignored and overlooked. We are the agency that works with young people so they can lead in solving those challenges. Whether that means supporting communities to end child marriage or prevent HIV, we work with young people to change their lives and the lives of people in their communities.

We work at depth – in local communities where we have been for 30 years, and we work at scale. We have Hubs in 10 countries and a Youth Collective with 3,000 local youth organisations in more than 170 countries.

Our work is genuinely life-changing, but can’t do any of this without talented, creative individuals at every level of our organisation.

Our Approach to Safeguarding

Restless Development considers the welfare and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults to be an organisational imperative with primacy over the success of programmes or strategic objectives. We recognise that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility and we expect all of our staff, volunteers and partners to ensure we protect the communities in which we operate from harm and abide by our Safeguarding Policy.

The SHE SOARS project seeks to increase enjoyment of sexual related human rights by the most marginalised and vulnerable women and girls’ rights holders particularly out of school adolescent girls. Therefore, we are looking for young people passionate about sexual reproductive health and research to be part of this exciting work as youth researchers.
