GHC is seeking an action-oriented, adaptive global leader who is excited about accelerating the learning and professional growth of our community members. The past ten years have been full of rapid growth for GHC and our alumni are critical to our mission of mobilizing a community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity. With almost 1000 global health leaders in the GHC network, we are in need of a passionate team member who can connect our alumni with the resources and opportunities to advance their leadership and professional growth in order to improve the health of those most in need, both in their own countries and beyond.
Building upon the success of the fellowship year, the Engagement and Learning Coordinator will work closely with the Director of Professional Development and other GHC staff members to evaluate, curate and rollout leadership trainings and events globally for our alumni. The candidate must be able to effectively understand the needs of our global health leaders and source learning opportunities that can further support their development. This role requires innovative thinking and an out-of-the-box approach to learning.
Global Health Corps
Global Health Corps (GHC) mobilizes a global community of emerging leaders to build the movement for health equity. GHC believes young leaders with diverse backgrounds and a deep commitment to collaboration, innovation, and social justice are going to revolutionize how the world tackles its toughest health challenges. We strongly believe our GHC community is the new breed of leaders that the world desperately needs.
Through a competitive recruitment process, we identify daring and innovative university graduates and early- to mid-career professionals from around the world and pair them with amazing partner organizations and government agencies in the US, East Africa, and Southern Africa. Our fellows spend a year in their placement devoting their unstoppable energy to making the world a healthier place for all people, everywhere. Whether they are working with a small grassroots organization like HIPS in Washington, DC to ensure sex workers have access to critical health services, or with the Ministry of Health in Zambia researching patient use of HIV testing and counseling, each fellow plays an essential role in the health equity movement.
Fellows come together five times a year for additional training, community building, leadership development, and mentorship to become audacious, resilient, and highly-networked changemakers. Each one of our fellows has the capacity to change the world – and many already are – and we are grateful to work closely with them to amplify their impact. Since its founding in 2009, GHC has supported nearly 600 fellows working at various levels of the health system, across issue areas and across continents, and our community gets stronger every year.
