Youth and Inclusion Manager at ACDI/VOCA November, 2022

1963 and in 146 countries, ACDI/VOCA has empowered people in developing
and transitional nations to succeed in the global economy. Based in
Washington, D.C., ACDI/VOCA is a nonprofit international development
organization that delivers technical and management assistance in
agribusiness, financial services, enterprise development, community
development, and food security in order to promote broad-based economic
growth and a vibrant civil society.

Feed the Future Tanzania Kilimo Tija Activity is part of the U.S.
Government’s (USG) Global Food Security Strategy (GFSS), which promotes
global food security, resilience, and nutrition. The purpose of this
horticulture activity is to sustainably increase economic opportunities
in horticulture market systems, especially for youth. This purpose will
be achieved by: (a) strengthening horticulture market systems to
increase enterprise and employment opportunities; (b) increasing access
to commercially provided climate smart, and productivity–enhancing
agricultural technologies; and (c) strengthening the enabling
environment for market systems. The Zone of Influence (ZOI) will include
the regions of Morogoro, Iringa, Mbeya, Njombe, and Zanzibar. It will
also include key market sheds outside of this ZOI, such as Dar es
Salaam, Songwe, and Arusha, all of which have potentially important
transport and market facilities.

Target beneficiaries will
include both direct beneficiaries that receive USG assistance, indirect
beneficiaries who copy those assisted directly, and businesses that
capitalize on opportunities developed by USG investments. Interventions
will prioritize inclusion and expanded opportunities for youth
involvement. Participants could include private sector actors such as
producers, input suppliers, service providers, processors,
traders/resellers, buyers, and financial institutions; public sector
actors such as the GOT national and local governments, including GOT
extension workers; and civil society, including TAHA as well as other
producer and buyer associations.

Pursuant to its mission,
ACDI/VOCA is seeking an experienced and talented professional for the
Youth and Inclusion Manager position. The position will be based in Dar
es Salaam and is expected to lead the implementation of the overall
strategy for gender, youth, and social inclusion (GYSI) and ensure the
