  • FT or PT Associate Contract Position

    Led by renowned Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist and activist Stephanie Sinclair, the
    mission of Too Young To Wed (TYTW) is to empower girls and end child marriage globally.
    While child marriage occurs in almost all countries, and is not exclusive to any particular
    religion or society, TYTW focuses its programming in areas where child marriage is most
    egregious and underreported.

    TYTW envisions a world where every girl can decide for herself, if, when and whom to marry;
    where adolescent girls are free to be children and teens with access to healthcare and all levels of
    education; and where all girls are free to determine the course of their own lives. TYTW
    provides visual evidence of the human rights challenges faced by women and girls, amplifies
    their courageous voices, builds a global community dedicated to ending child, early and forced
    marriage, and inspires the global community to act—transforming influential advocacy into
    tangible action in the communities where the girls in our images live.
