Program Officer job at Pact

About the Organization

Since our founding in 1971, much has changed at Pact. When we began, we were a membership organization for U.S. nonprofits working to turn the tables for the world’s most disadvantaged. Our mission was to help our members better serve people in need by building their self-help capacity and improving social and economic conditions. Through the years, our top priorities were health care and neglected groups, such as women. Two decades later, we became an independent organization, and since then, we have vastly expanded our geographic reach, our practice areas and our impact.

Job Description

Pact is recruiting Program Officer – Youth Engagement for the USAID-funded Strengthening Youth and Women’s Civic Participation Project. The Project aims to increase collaboration, sustainability, and resilience of civil society and independent media to advance the inclusion, participation and leadership of youth and women in Sudan. The activity will apply locally led, problem-driven, adaptive approaches. This program is in year 2 of an anticipated five-year activity, with a dramatic shift in the operating context since the program startup in Khartoum in October 2022. This position will be based in Kampala, Uganda with the possibility of occasional travel in the East Africa region.

The Program Officer will function as the technical focal point supporting the program’s subaward portfolio through identification of and relationship building with civil society organizations (CSOs) who will partner with Pact in the implementation of the program in Youth Engagement. The Program Officer will be expected to utilize inclusive, participatory approaches that are consistent with project objectives to support partners and achieve results. As the program’s subaward portfolio grows, the Program Officer’s geographic and technical portfolio within Sudan and East Africa will become more defined.
