Offer: Job Opportunities at Generations for Peace in Amman, Jordan
Generations For Peace is an international non-governmental charitable organisation dedicated to the innovative and sustainable use of sport for peace building and development. Founded by HRH Prince Feisal Al Hussein of Jordan, Generations For Peace is based in Amman but supports sport for peace and development activities in 48 countries and territories worldwide. Generations For Peace is one of only two peace-through-sport organisations officially recognised by the International Olympic Committee. Through its intensive Pioneer Certification Programme, Generations For Peace has trained 578 delegates from the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Europe. Following a cascading approach, these delegates have become certified Generations For Peace Pioneers by passing on their skills: training another 4,800 leaders of youth in their communities and in turn reaching more than 75,000 children with their activities.
Generations For Peace is now moving to the next phase of its evolution and global expansion, with even greater emphasis on its commitment to Pioneer programmes on the ground in communities experiencing various forms of conflict, and significant growth in capacity of the team in Amman. Eight new positions were recently recruited.
Three further positions, for roles in the Generations For Peace Institute, are now being recruited. Serving and supporting the sport for peace and development community, the Generations For Peace Institute’s role is to conduct, invest in, and disseminate collaborative cutting-edge interdisciplinary research in sport for sustainable peace and development.
This research is fundamental for rigorous evaluation of the impact that programmes are having, for sharing and exchanging best practices and innovations, and for collective learning and improved programming. It also helps drive our advocacy efforts to demonstrate and increase the use and impact of well-designed sport-based activities as a tool for sustainable peace and development. The Institute enjoys collaborative partnerships with Georgetown University and University of Oxford and is now expanding its efforts in research and development, and monitoring and evaluation.
