About Us:

Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting is the world’s only movement for every girl and any girl because we believe that each of them deserves to be the best they can be. Free to make what they want from the Movement, girls learn by doing, make friends and have fun. In safe, local spaces, girls develop the skills and attitudes to change themselves, their communities, and our world. The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) keeps the global Movement thriving, united and growing. This role operates within the context of a volunteer led global charitable organisation with 152 Member Organisations (MOs).

Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago). You will work closely with girls and young women, leaders, MOs, colleagues, and partners with expertise in climate change to oversee the completion of the new programme for girls to learn, take action and advocate for change. Your skills in managing multiple work streams, budgets and work relationships will deliver an excellent programme with strong results within the project timeline.

The curriculum has already been finalized and you will be taking care of supporting and monitoring the rollout from the MOs side.
