Key responsibilities encompass collaborating closely with the CEO and program volunteers to strategize the scope, deliverables, resources, work plan, budget, and timing for GYLC’s innovative initiatives. You’ll be tasked with managing partnerships across government sectors, universities, funders, youth initiatives, and local and international organizations vested in youth leadership, climate adaptation, mitigation, and resilience.

Moreover, your role will involve crafting proposals and supporting the CEO in business development, spearheading the creation of online green skills courses for youth in Africa and Asia, supervising GYLC Youth Climate Champions for their community projects funded across climate-vulnerable countries, and collaboratively organizing the annual Global Youth Climate Summit. Additionally, you’ll analyze, evaluate, and mitigate program risks, providing comprehensive reports for both management and funders.
