Coordinate and oversee the operational planning, implementation, monitoring, evaluation and reporting of the project ‘Diversity Under Attack! Empowering At-Risk LGBTI Youth in the Americas’ which aims to create sustainable human rights change for LGBTI youth in Peru, Paraguay, Puerto Rico and Venezuela by supporting and working with and for human rights defenders (HRDs), LGBTI and non-LGBTI youth, LGBTI organizations, and school communities via human rights education and capacity building approaches.
In close collaboration with Amnesty’s sections (Amnesty national implementing entities) in these countries, the post holder’s main responsibility will be the coordination and oversight of education, empowerment and human rights activities at the national and regional levels and taking the lead in planning, monitoring and reporting on consolidated information from all countries involved.
The project will be funded by the Dutch Government’s Human Rights Fund, and a key responsibility will be ensuring compliance with the requirements set out in the Grant Agreement with the donor.
Success in this job will mean a smooth and efficient transition into the second phase of this multi-annual project under a new external donor. The post holder is able to absorb and interpret a lot of complex information, especially in the first few months of work, and to help project countries shift ways of working under new donor requirements and adjust existing instruments and processes for project management.
The post holder successfully oversees the development and design of tailor-made blended online/offline learning courses and other interventions that are contextually relevant and based on needs in the project countries, while also seeking integration of the outputs in other areas of work and section countries of Amnesty International Americas. The relationship with the donor is maintained and strengthened as a result of the collaborative work executed during the course of the project.
The post holder is instrumental in achieving the impact as set out in the project proposal, supporting project countries to lead the participants through interventions that guide them from learning to taking action, fostering connections and exchange between project countries and its young LGBTI defenders and activists and engaging with the wider community in the four project countries as well as more broadly across the region. The post holder plays a key role in enabling young LGBTI HRDs to understand and defend human rights, analyse key patterns and root causes of human rights violations, improve their personal security and implement interventions aimed at bringing about a lasting and sustainable change.
