Brazil Team Leader

Global Citizen Year Inc

About the organization

Global Citizen Year puts our Fellows a world ahead so they can, in turn, move the world ahead.

The year between high school and college is the most critical developmental moment in a young person’s life. Recognized by societies and religions alike, this transition – when done by design and not by default - can become a transformation.

Each year we recruit and train a talented and diverse corps of high school graduates from across America and beyond and support them through a school-year long immersion in communities in India, Brazil, Ecuador and Senegal. As Fellows, they live with a local family and work as apprentices supporting efforts in education, health, and the environment. Through training, coaching and structured reflection our Fellows develop skills and perspectives that guide their education, shape their character, and inform their leadership.


Global Citizen Year seeks a high-energy, engaged youth development professional to join our cohort of Team Leaders in Brazil. The Brazil Team Leader will be responsible for coaching and mentoring a cohort of Fellows, and managing a portfolio of partners (including local host families, apprenticeship partners, language teachers) throughout each immersion program cycle, during which they will be expected to live and work in Santa Catarina.

Reporting to the Country Director, the Brazil Team Leader will provide first line support to a cohort of up to 12 Fellows - diverse high school graduates from around the world, selected for their resilience, idealism, and potential as future leaders.
