The International LGBTQI Youth & Student Organisation (IGLYO) is a member-based youth and student network, with over 100 members in 40 Council of Europe countries. IGLYO’s vision is a world where we, young people in all our diversity, are able to express and define our own sexual orientations, gender identities, gender expressions and variations in sex characteristics, and are able to participate fully in all
aspects of life, rise to our full potential, and enjoy respect and positive recognition. IGLYO strives to ensure the voices and experiences of LGBTQI young people are present and heard by decision-makers at European and international levels, by implementing and designing research and policy work in areas such as inclusive education. To create an influential collective of young activists, IGLYO also builds the confidence, skills and experience of LGBTQI youth through cross-cultural exchange and peer learning activities.


Candidates must be eligible to work in Belgium at time of application, as IGLYO does not currently have the capacity to sponsor work visas.
IGLYO particularly welcomes applications from women, trans, non-binary and intersex people, individuals from black communities, other communities of colour & ethnic minorities & who are under 30 years old.
