United Network of Young Peace builders -Call for Trainers

Deadline for applications: 16th April 2017

The United Network of Young Peacebuilders (UNOY Peacebuilders) is currently seeking a trainer for the Online Training of Localisers

Summary

Position Trainer
Agreement type Consultancy
Project Coordinator United Network of Young Peacebuilders (UNOY)
Purpose Develop and implement online training course on localising the youth, peace and security agenda.
Location Home based
Duration 15 June 2017 to 15 August 2017

Background

On 9 December 2015 the UN Security Council adopted the resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security. This is great news for young peacebuilders around the world, but a UN Security Council Resolution is not in itself a solution for the exclusion and underrepresentation of young people in peace processes. The calls made in the resolution have to be translated into reality, through institutional actors, but also through capacity development of young activists. Localisation of the youth peacebuilding agenda is key to ensure a good implementation of the resolution.

The aim of this Online Training for Localisation is to empower young people to act as “mobilisers” of Resolution 2250 in their local communities, nationally and internationally. The training will in part be based on the guide “Translating Youth, Peace & Security Policy into Practice”. The training will help young people develop their active role in peace and security issues as well as their competences for translating the Youth, Peace and Security Policy into practice.

Role

The Online Training for Localisation will be run by three trainers who will be jointly responsible for developing and leading an online training taking place over two months from 15 June to 15 August 2017. The development of the training course curriculum will be done in close collaboration with the UNOY Peacebuilders International Secretariat team.

Specifically, the trainers will:

  • Develop a curriculum aimed at sharpening participants’ understanding of the political environment and power relations around youth participation in peacebuilding in their own context, deepening their knowledge of UNSCR 2250 and the role it can play. Expected working days per trainer: 3.
  • Design and implement an Online Training Course based on the curriculum developed. The course is expected to include a series of eight online sessions as well as assignments between online sessions, though the precise approach is open to further design by the trainers. Expected working days per trainer: 10.

Provide guidance and support to participants in translating international policy into local reality in a youth-led way, by supporting participants design and implement local and/or national follow-up activities. These follow-up activities will make use of participants’ learning in the training course and be aimed at setting up local and/or national coalitions for youth, peace and security in participants own local and/or national contexts. Expected working days per trainer: 5.

Support

UNOY Peacebuilders is responsible for the following:

  • Calling for and selecting participants, in consultation with the trainers.
  • Providing guidance and input on both curriculum development and training course design.
  • Setting up and providing access to an online training platform and other IT systems as necessary.

  • Fee: €2,160 for 18 days of work.
