In August 2016, Restless Development launched a new 15-year vision underpinned by a 5-year strategy. This marks an exciting turning point in the history of the agency which firmly establishes us as a global leader on youth-led development, as well as a champion of a paradigm shift in the international development sector which puts young people at the heart and unleashes their power to achieve real change.
Restless Development Uganda secured a number of new partnerships resulting in a large and complex donor portfolio, increased income and geographical reach.
Restless Development Uganda is seeking to recruit one talented individual to coordinate all activities relating to an exciting youth-led advocacy, research and accountability initiative, implemented in partnership with a major development agency. The programme will promote youth-led social accountability by improving young people’s leadership, life-skills, technical knowledge on civic issues, policy, advocacy and research, so that they are better prepared to actively engage with their leaders. The programme will also see the creation of District Youth Working Groups to strengthen platforms for young people to voice their concerns, lead advocacy and accountability efforts, and meaningfully engage with district leaders.
In total, the programme will be implemented in 10 districts of Uganda: Moroto, Napak, Kotido and Nakapiripirit Districts in northeastern Uganda; Gulu, Nwoya, Pader and Abim Districts of northern Uganda; and Kamuli and Iganga Districts in the East. The Coordinator will be based in Jinja and will coordinate project activities in Kamuli and Iganga Districts.
Supported by the programme Manager, the Programme Coordinator will oversee the implementation of the youth-led social accountability programme. S/he will work closely with one programme officer and 40 research team members.
