Organizational Development Specialist

Project Description

The Center for Development and Democracy (CDD) in Georgia has requested the support of a Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV) to serve as an Organizational Development Specialist. CDD is working on several civil society, human rights, and good governance projects, and is most excited about their newly launched Georgian E-learning platform “Kentsero” which seeks to create engaging and clear educational resources for important topics in civic discourse. CDD staff is focused on improving and further developing the Kentsero project, and has identified a need for support for the further development of Kentsero and overall organizational development of CDD.

The PCRVs will collaborate with the Program Development Manager to aid in the evaluation and enhancement of the digital education program for youth and co-develop a quality assurance and sustainability plan. The PCRV will also collaborate with the organization to devise effective fundraising strategies and identify potential funding sources, fundraising event opportunities, both within and outside the country and assist in researching and establishing partnerships with potential donors and funding organizations.

Candidates selected for this position will be arriving in Georgia together as a group, so while the departure dates for the whole group could change, dates cannot be changed for individual candidates.
