ABOUT EQWIP HUBs
Do you want to work with a team of energetic, skilled and passionate individuals who are motivated to create innovative solutions for sustainable youth livelihoods? If yes, then EQWIP HUBs is the team for you!
Powered by Canadian leaders in global youth development – Youth Challenge International (YCI) and Canada World Youth (CWY) – the EQWIP HUBs project is a global network that connects Canadian volunteers, youth participants, and international partners through innovative programming in six developing countries.
Through 18 youth centered HUBs in Bolivia, Ghana, Indonesia, Peru, Senegal and Tanzania, EQWIP HUBs offers entrepreneurship and employment training so that young people, especially women, can come together to develop market-relevant skills, learn from mentors and access technology. EQWIP HUBs is an initiative rooted in global collaboration making it a unique catalyst for sustainable development. Together, we’re on a mission to change the lives of 100,000 youth by 2020.
Youth Challenge International & Canada World Youth
Each recognized as Canadian leaders, YCI and CWY bring a combined 70 years of expertise in global youth development. Young people around the world have been transformed through CWY’s world-renowned global reciprocal exchange programs and YCI’s youth innovation initiatives, proving young people can make a real difference in global health, the environment, and youth livelihoods.
Youth Challenge International (YCI) and Canada World Youth (CWY) believe that all those who contribute, participate and benefit from their projects and initiatives, including the EQWIP HUBs project, are entitled to an environment free of sexual exploitation and abuse. The two organizations are seeking a consultant to develop procedures and guidelines to reduce the risk of such incidents occurring and for designated staff to respond in a timely manner to any complaint or report of sexual assault, harassment or exploitation.
The consultant, under the guidance of the Steering Committee, will review and build on the existing policies and procedures of CWY and YCI to produce a framework and support EQWIP HUBs’ project staff in identifying, mitigating and responding to sexual assault, harassment and exploitation. This should be in compliance with Canadian laws and regulations concerning sexual assault and harassment and meet the standards of Global Affairs Canada and the United Nations in mitigating and responding to sexual abuse and exploitation.
The key deliverables expected are the following:
