 SALARY: $12,000 (fixed for approximately 30 days work)

 LOCATION: Remotely

 CLOSING DATE: 11th January 2019


Restless Development is an agency for youth-led development, demonstrating from the grass-roots to the global policy level that young people can and must play a leading role in development. As a result, Restless Development is repeatedly cited as the model for best practice in youth-led development by the World Bank, UNICEF, USAID, and others. Through 10 global hubs, our work is delivered by young people, giving them the skills and resources to deal with the main issues facing their communities and countries. From tackling unemployment and sexual rights, to supporting young people to have a voice, and enabling youth leadership at the heart of development, Restless Development programs are genuinely life-changing. 


We are a US non-profit with 501(c)(3) status, working in collaboration with other Restless Development Hubs around the world. We are an essential strategic hub for the global agency, and work on policy influence, investment partnerships and thought leadership and technical assistance on youth-led development. Launched seven years ago in New York, the US Hub has steadily grown and is now in an exciting era of increasing growth, influence and opportunity.

In that time, we have taken on a leadership role to support the strengthening of Restless Development’s work with girls and young women, and on gender equality. We are looking for a passionate and hardworking Consultant to support the global agency’s work on advancing Family Planning (FP2020) implementation of meaningful youth engagement. 

The Meaningful Youth Engagement Assessment consultant will provide coordination and technical support of the implementation of an assessment on meaningful youth engagement of FP2020, a global partnership working on rights-based family planning. The consultant will work closely with Restless Development staff to undertake a desk review and power mapping of FP2020, design and undertake an assessment on meaningful youth engagement within the global partnership and to develop a youth engagement strategy based on the findings. The consultant will lead on logistical management of the assessment, and will work closely with both Restless Development staff and 3 Youth Panel members.
