USAID Takamol is collaborating with the GoJ partners to improve counseling services for the purposes of encouraging interest in vocational training and non-traditional career paths. USAID Takamol is seeking 1-2 consultants who will work to improve counseling services and the promotion of vocational training options in order to contribute to changing perceptions about vocational training as well as traditional gender-stereotypes related to suitable career paths. The consultant(s) will develop customized counseling materials in coordination with USAID Takamol and the GoJ partner(s) and train GoJ staff on using the new materials. Examples of the customized materials may include a manual for counselors, promotional materials, tools for students, and other resources that mainstream a gender-sensitive approach to outreach, counseling, and guiding students on career paths. The counseling materials may be modifications or additions to existing resources or new content developed in collaboration with the GoJ partner.
We strive for a more just, prosperous, and inclusive world—where individuals reach their full potential, governments serve their people, and communities thrive.
