|Description du stage :||
Coady International Institute and Oxfam Canada-Ethiopia are
collaborating with nineteen Ethiopian NGOs working in rural areas in a second
phase of developing capacity for community driven - development (an asset-based
approach). The Phase II Asset Based Development Project will develop capacity
of Ethiopian NGOs and communities through training in Ethiopia and in Canada;
action research in collaboration with the NGOs at the community level; and
bi-annual workshops to share learning and plan next steps. The project is
expected to model successful development practice that is lead by communities
using an asset-based approach while linking communities with national and
international research institutions that can provide effective technical advice
and support to rural initiatives.
Coady's Youth in Partnership program has two Canada-based components: a four week pre- departure orientation (including workshops designed to prepare the associate for living and working overseas) and an educational program (for which a certificate is awarded).
Pre-Departure Orientation: The educational component, working as joint participants with development professionals from across the global south, allow the youth associate to become more familiar with the philosophy of development, the principles of adult education and community-driven development. It also enables the associates to learn directly from the experience of Southern development leaders. The workshops guide the associates in their preparation for the overseas component of the program. Associates learn to compile research related their placement countries and organizations as well as the specific issues that are central to their overseas job description. The workshops include counselling and training related to gender, environment and HIV/AIDS as well as practical approaches to living and working in a Southern country environment. The responsibilities of the associates during this component are: to live cooperatively together in a residential training setting; to attend and participate fully all educational and workshop sessions; to research and document their placement country and organization and build a portfolio related to the overseas job description; to participate in one-on-one counselling sessions with the Youth Programs Coordinator and to develop links with a Canada-based mentor who will be available by email and telephone to provide advice related to the overseas work. The orientation period for this placement will also include specific training in asset-based approaches to community-driven development and required reading with respect to ABCD and the Ethiopian project.
Re-entry Program. Following the overseas component of the internship, the associate is required to participate in a two-week re-entry program in Canada. The re-entry program assists the youth associate to reflect on their experience, to de-brief and to share their experiences with other Canadians. The program also includes an opportunity to develop career and job search skills. Associates are required to prepare substantive reports of their achievements relative to their job descriptions, prepare a press release, engage in job search activities, to participate and present their experience in at least one public forum, and to participate fully and openly in debriefing exercises with their colleagues as well as on a one-on-one basis with the Youth Programs Coordinator. They are also required to prepare written evaluations of each component of the internship program, to participate in group evaluation discussions and to provide a critical assessment of their individual placement.
The "Asset-Based Development Support Associate" will report to the Oxfam Canada-Ethiopia in-country co-ordinator and will work with and provide support to a team of development professionals at Oxfam-Canada Ethiopia to support the implementation of the project. The Youth Associate's specific responsibilities will include:
assisting the Oxfam Canada - Coady documentation team by gathering primary data at the level of communities and NGOs related to program implementation and learning;
assist in the development of ABCD training curriculum for Oxfam and NGO field staff;
participate in management and analysis of a participatory monitoring and evaluation framework for the project;
provide planning and logistical support for training activities and bi-annual workshops;
prepare activity reports and proposals based on field work and monitoring and evaluation activities;
act as the liaison resource person between Coady and Oxfam Ethiopia and between Oxfam-Ethiopia and the participating NGOs.
