YOURS – Youth for Road Safety is looking for a Capacity Development Manager to help support the strategic ambitions of the organization. The Capacity Development Manager is a new exciting role within the leading global organization on youth and road safety issues. We need you to be proactive, organized, self-managing, a self-starter, and ready to support taking our youth empowerment work to the next level.

About our work
YOURS is a global organization that acts to make the world’s roads safe for and with youth. Road crashes are the leading killer of young people. Everyday 1000 youth aged 15-29 are dying on the world’s roads and youth are saying enough is enough. 

We are experts in youth and road safety issues and advocate for sustainable mobility at the highest levels of decision-making. We believe in meaningful youth participation as a key strategy to change these statistics. With strategic global advocacy and empowering youth locally, we will unlock a global revolution for road safety and make this generation the last one facing this massive public health threat.

We are a small team with big ideas and powerful allies. We are proud of our work and have loads of fun while doing it. 

Some of the key roles and responsibilities include:

  •  Support CD interventions both at the grassroots and institutional levels to meet our objective of empowering youth leaders to take action and supporting policymakers in meaningfully engaging with young people.
  •  Extend support and guidance to team members in developing training curriculums, manuals, modules, and relevant guidelines for their project-based capacity development needs.
  •   Help organize and conduct/facilitate workshops, training, and seminars with various stakeholders.
  •   Manage a community of young learners that are taking part in different knowledge and learning opportunities and activities that YOURS has under various projects and programs.

“I’m really looking forward to having a young professional join the capacity development team at YOURS to help deliver our ambitious vision for youth empowerment and levelling-up our young leader’s skills and knowledge on road safety”. – Manpreet Darroch, Capacity Development Director @ YOURS
