People including, but not limited to, those from the following groups are encouraged to apply: Indigenous peoples, women, mothers, single parents, immigrants, protected persons and refugees, people of color, lesbian, bisexual, gay, two-spirit, transgender, gender non-conforming, gender fluid, non-binary, agender, genderqueer, and questioning people, intersex people, people living with disabilities, and those marginalized based on class, caste, and HIV status.

(English) PEP Africa is a pro-youth organization and, as such, relies on active volunteerism.

The continuation of volunteerism depends on the satisfactory fulfillment of these roles, and volunteers are required to apply for renewal as needs are.
(English) As PEP Africa relies on active volunteerism volunteering, volunteers must devote a minimum of 10-15 hours per week to PEP Africa activities, which includes responding to emails, contributing to online discussions, and taking part in our planned activities.

We also develop advocacy strategies, create publications, and organize training on specific issues such as youth rights and youth development.
