The USAID Community, Family, and Youth Resilience (CFYR) project offers a holistic approach to violence prevention, using primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention interventions. The program strengthens youth, family, and community support systems; improves the skills of youth to resist involvement in violence; expands access to education and employment opportunities; and provides specialized services to youth at the highest risk of engaging in violence. Additionally, the program is working in Guyana on juvenile justice reforms to ensure that youth already in contact with the law can be successfully rehabilitated and reintegrated into the community. The project is based in St. Lucia, with satellite offices in St. Kitts and Guyana.
The Knowledge Management and Learning Specialist will work closely with the CFYR team, national and regional bodies, donors, and USAID/ESC, to synthesize and promote knowledge sharing activities and resources through a continuous learning cycle across all ten USAID/ESC host countries. The Specialist will develop strategies to capture, share, and apply knowledge and learning generated by the project, and support design and organization of national and regional events and conferences. In addition to overseeing the learning agenda, this Specialist will be tasked with overseeing and advocacy agenda to promote policy reform around positive youth development and crime and violence prevention interventions grounded in public health approaches.
The Knowledge Management and Learning Specialist reports to the Chief of Party.
