Thematic Trainers for Key Institutional Leaders

About the Project

Search and the National Commission for Lebanese Women (NCLW) are  implementing a four-year regional program called “Women, Youth, Peace and Security” (WYPS). The program’s overall goal is to strengthen the meaningful and enduring participation of women and youth in advancing inclusive peace and security in the Levant and Yemen. To do this, the program aims to: 1) consolidate women's rights organizations’ (WROs) and youth-focused/youth-led organizations’ (YFOs/YLOs) strategic engagement and influence in municipal and national peace and reconciliation processes; 2) motivate key sub-national and national institutions to strengthen inclusive policies and standards facilitating inclusive youth and women’s participation in peace and security; and 3) promote shifts in social norms around women and youth’s meaningful inclusion in peace and security at all levels, including stronger alliances with men and boys.


Consultancy Summary

Under the Women, Youth, Peace and Security (WYPS) program the National Commission for Lebanese Women and Search for Common Ground are aiming to work and engage with Key Institutional Leaders (KILs). The KILs are actors and influential people in the peace and security space - government actors, Track I and II mechanisms, coalitions leading the development of relevant National Action Plans (NAPs), etc.

Search and the NCLW are seeking to hire thematic trainers who will support in developing training materials, delivering training sessions, and providing a comprehensive trainer report to expand and retain the knowledge of the KILs and develop their skills in an array of topics identified by Search and NCLW. S/he/they will be under the direct supervision of Search’s Project Manager and NCLW’s Project Coordinator.


Goals and Objectives of the Consultancy

The goal of the thematic training is to enhance the knowledge, skills, and engagement of the KILs in Lebanon in areas related to WPS and YPS. In addition to equipping them with practical skills to contribute meaningfully to the advancement of women and youth in peace and security initiatives and promoting inclusivity and representation in policymaking processes.

Topics include:

  • Women, Peace, and Security (United Nations Security Council Resolution UNSCR 1325) and Youth, Peace, and Security (UNSCR 2250); and
