Do you want to ignite innovation to help children and youth transform the world? Do you believe in grassroots NGOs as visionary change-makers?

The Global Fund for Children is looking for a Program Specialist to help drive change in equitable access to quality education in Guatemala. You will join a multinational team of caring and committed individuals who believe in investing in bold ideas to help grassroots organizations deepen their impact and advocate for children’s rights. We value collaboration, integrity, innovation, and impact and our partners’ visions for change inspire all we do. Feedback and learning get us up in the morning, and we strive to be child-centered.

How does it all work? We invest in grassroots organizations that improve the lives of children challenged by poverty, injustice, and discrimination. We provide flexible, small grants and help our partners develop their organizational capacity in order to grow and be efficient and effective. We are committed to advancing the rights of children, and we fund organizations that are tackling tough issues in our four thematic focus areas: education, gender equity, youth empowerment, and freedom from violence and exploitation. We seek to boost the collective efforts of our partners to influence transformative change and mobilize networks, and we encourage our partners to learn from each other.

What will you be doing? In collaboration with the Americas program team in Washington, DC, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and Brazil, you will coordinate grant and capacity development support to a new cohort of partner organizations in Guatemala focused on recovering, renewing and expanding equitable access to quality education through direct work with children, families and communities, and through advocacy and influencing to make systemic change. In addition to building strong, trust-based relationships with each partner organization, your primary role will be to facilitate spaces of connection, collaboration, and collective action for the cohort and with other civil society actors. In building direct relationships with these partners, you will serve as a mentor, cheerleader, and internal advocate, and help connect them to resources to strengthen their organizational capacity and their work to advance equitable access to quality education. In weaving the cohort into a network, you will organize and facilitate diverse spaces, communications, events, and other creative avenues for our partners to connect with each other, both virtually and in person. You will support the grantmaking process, track reporting, update our grants database, draft funder reports and contribute to project management and new proposals. You will help document and communicate about the work of our partners and research new areas of investment. Over time, you may support additional partners or cohorts, primarily in Central America. And you’ll be a member of the Programs team, contributing to new programming, shaping new strategies, and pitching in on team efforts to make GFC’s work ever more impactful. You’ll communicate with our partners in Spanish and with the global GFC team in English.

Are you the right person? We are looking for someone who enjoys building strong trust-based relationships with diverse grassroots leaders and groups. You also are a natural facilitator, creating dynamic and open spaces for discussion and visioning and empowering collective leadership. You enjoy working in a collaborative environment and are a strong communicator. We need someone with passion for mastering all the pieces of global grantmaking operations, from early planning to final reporting and reflection. You are incredibly organized, and can be counted on to meet deadlines. You have at least an undergraduate degree (or equivalent experience) in education, social science, nutrition, health, international relations, international development, or a related field, and you may even have a master’s degree (this is preferable but not required). You have explored topics around child and youth development, children’s rights, education, gender equity, youth empowerment or child protection and your curiosity drives you to learn more. You’ve probably had some experience living or working beyond where you grew up, which gives you an understanding of the diverse contexts in which our partners work. You have developed skills in time management and multi-tasking, writing for diverse audiences, attention to detail, and cross-cultural communication through school, volunteering and previous work experiences. You have professional fluency in English (and you’re fluent in Spanish--it is probably your native language). You’re at ease with and can efficiently learn and use all the standard technology, software and web-platforms small organizations like GFC rely on to make our global work possible. You reside in Guatemala, and you are willing to travel to visit partners and GFC across the country, and outside Guatemala if required. You thrive in diverse environments with people of all ages, races, ethnicities, religions, abilities, gender identities, and sexual orientations.
