Job Description

A youth organization that seeks to promote youth participation in national development processes seeks to engage a consultant to undertake training of youth in the devolution agenda. Devolution is broadly understood as the transfer or delegation of power or responsibility from a central figure or governing body to a lower level of authority or government, such as a local or regional administration, while decentralization is the transferring of central government authority to lower levels of government at provincial or local government levels. Devolution aims to shift state power and governance from single-dimensional to multi-dimensional through flexible decision- making and the greater involvement of affected communities in deciding their needs and exercising oversight in the provision of those services. A youth organization seeks to engage a consultant to train youth in the origins, structure, progress, opportunities, challenges and successes in the devolution process.

Objectives of the training

  • To enhance youth understanding of the devolution process with a focus on origins, structure, progress, opportunities, challenges and successes in the devolution process;
  • To provide youth an opportunity to explore advocacy entry points around the devolution process;
  • To provide an assessment of spaces and opportunities for civil society and youth’s participation in devolution

  • At least 5 years of extensive experience in local governance training, research and evaluations;

The consultant will report directly to the Director. The contract for the assignment will be signed between the consultant and the contracting youth organization.
