Jobs in Tanzania: Community Facilitator at Save the Children

Jobs in Tanzania: Community Facilitator at Save the Children
The overall objective of the Discover project is the development and testing of the Discover Learning intervention with a goal of promoting positive, gender norm transformative, social-emotional learning during early adolescence. The Discover Learning intervention builds on research from transdisciplinary developmental science that indicates that early adolescence (ages 10-14), is a period of dynamic maturational changes. The Discover Learning intervention has been designed as a 14-session, public, primary-school-based intervention for 10-14 year olds

Students will work in small, same-age, mixed gender groups that will be led by young adult (20 to 30-year-old) trained Discover Learning Facilitators who will serve as mentors/coaches. Using a case-based learning model, the youth will learn a group process for problem solving including evaluating what is known about a particular topic, identifying new questions and areas of inquiry, making hypotheses, and creating a strategy about how to gather information to answer their questions and/or solve problems.

The Discover Learning Facilitator will be engaged in the successful design,
implementation, and evaluation of the Discover Learning intervention and provide leadership and inspiration to youth participants in Discover Learning.
