Description

Since 2009, CARE has led an innovative program called Learning Tours.  The goal is to take policymakers, government leaders and change-makers on short, intensive trips where they meet the people whose lives are being transformed through US investments.  We believe when leaders meet the women and families, they will be inspired and motivated to lead change.

The Deputy Director of Learning Tours has experience planning high profile congressional delegation trips as well as experience living in countries outside of the US with the demonstrated ability to navigate relationships with community members and local partners with dignity and respect.

Responsibilities:

  • Supports in relationship management and cultivation of Learning Tour alumni network, grant and budget management, team management and departmental strategic planning and priority-setting
  • Prepares and plans trips including pre-advance planning trips to evaluate and identify sites to visit, develop trip agenda and narrative, collaborate with implementing partners, US missions, vendors and CARE colleagues in country to finalize trip preparation
