TOP Junior Leader Training is one of the main activities for the Junior Leadership Boys & Girls Program, which was created to support, educate and guide CCF students living in the Steung Meanchey community. This program provides a positive, healthy and creative social environment for CCF students from 11 years and older. Junior Leaders learn organizational and leadership skills by volunteering in community outreach programs.

We are looking for a trainer who can work with our leadership team to devise a curriculum of training workshops for these students. The training will focus in expanding their knowledge, skills, tools and practice for them to be able to fulfill their leadership roles successfully. The volunteer will be expected to create the curriculum and example workshops based on direction from the students and staff as to what skills they want to focus on developing. Previous training session and lesson plans will be available to the trainer for reference, and guidance will be provided from staff.

  • Informal discussions that encourage sharing by all students on their activities
  • Team building games/activities
