The Youth Task Force in Za'atari Camp is an action-oriented field-level forum, which is focused on youth-specific advocacy, planning and coordination, while addressing the cross-cutting nature of the population group, and works toward advancing the youth agenda in humanitarian settings in line with the Global Compact for young people in Humanitarian Action. 

The Youth Task Force chaired by UNFPA and co-chaired by NRC, and its 15 member organizations worked on launching a series of short films that highlights the implementation of the Global Compact in Zaatari Refugee Camp - Jordan. The videos highlight five stories around the five commitments to young people around the key actions of: 

  •  Service Delivery
  •  Participation
  • Capacity and Local Action
  • Resources
  • Data and Knowledge

The first film will highlight the key action around “Participation” inline with the International Youth Day 2020 theme. The Compact calls for Youth Co-design programmes and proposals with adolescent and youth groups and, where possible, include a budget for their projects in agency budgets. In addition to their active engagement in humanitarian coordination structures.

On the first of every month, starting September a film will be released highlighting a new key area and the work from the field within the context of Zaatari Refugee Camp. The Compact for Young People in Humanitarian Action represents a formal agreement among the Members to be held accountable by each other, and by young people, in each of the key action areas. The Compact provides the dedicated space and the necessary framework for Members to ensure that the priorities, needs and rights of young women and young men, girls and boys affected by disaster, conflict, forced displacement and other humanitarian crises, are addressed; and that young people are informed, consulted, and meaningfully engaged throughout all stages of humanitarian action.
