Project Implementation Support

 

Summary

This document describes the scope and deliverables for an organization to manage and implement activities related to the Jordan: Integrated Social Services for Vulnerable Youth Project. The Ministry of Youth (MOY) is the government agency responsible for overall implementation of the Project[1] and will be the client for the services described in this TOR. The Project is designed to be jointly implemented by two or more partnering organizations, and interested organizations are encouraged to prepare a proposal as consortium through a lead-organization.[2]

 

  1.  Background

Project Description

Objective: The Project development objective is to improve the quality of life of vulnerable youth by increasing the provision of services to young people, by increasing the participation of youth in decision-making related to these services, and by empowering local NGOs/service providers and communities.

Beneficiaries: The Project is expected to benefit an estimated 3000 youth[3] with improved skills and improved community services. Of those, a certain percent is expected to have access to employment opportunities. In addition, NGOs and community organizations will benefit from training in delivering improved and targeted services to youth enhancing their integration into local communities.

Project Area: The Project will be implemented in a select number of communities located in East Amman and governorates linked to the Aghwar region. Project communities will include, but are not limited to, East Amman, Kerak, Northern and Southern Ghour, Tafilah and Zarqa Governorates.[4]

Theory of change: The Project is expected to contribute to positive youth development in Jordan, i.e. strengthen youth’s positive role in development by increasing their assets and promoting voice and agency. Youth Services: An increase in access and quality of services, increases youth’s assets (skills), promotes trust in public institutions and reduces competition over public resources. Youth Empowerment: If youth are able to engage as community leaders and participate in local decision making processes, they will less likely feel marginalized and excluded. Overall youth will be able to become positive agents of change and will be motivated to engage in sustainable development of their communities, which will foster social cohesion. All sub activities are expected to operationalize the theory of change including establishing measurable outcomes.

Component 1: Capacity-Building for Civil Society Partners serving Youth

Under component 1, the Project will enhance the capacity of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) to provide integrated services to youth through training workshops and other learning events and exchanges. The component will also fill critical capacity gaps regarding youth engagement and participatory youth programming and monitoring and evaluation and will support the MoY in strengthening its overall capacity in developing and implementing sustainable youth development programs, including building the capacity of its Youth center staff in each project location.

Activity 1.1: Capacity-building for Civil Society Partners

Activity 1.1. will involve capacity-building activities for NGOs and CBOs and other service providers[5], providing youth-services in the selected project areas, based on a capacity-building plan for each local partner. The latter will be based on a thorough and participatory needs assessment[6] and will have the objective of building capacity in the areas of youth empowerment, delivery of quality services for youth, and the use of participatory approaches. The capacity building plan will include an analysis of the National Youth Strategy and its implementation plans, as well as other relevant government strategies.

In total, a minimum of 200 staff from 40 of NGOs, CBOs, and other service providers is expected to participate in the capacity building activities. Indirectly, this activity will benefit youth served by local NGOs, CBOs, and other service providers.

Activity 1.2: Support to Youth Volunteer Program and Youth Coordination Platforms

Youth Volunteer Program: Under this activity, youth leaders in project areas will be trained on community engagement including on outreach to more vulnerable youth populations, with the objective to mobilize participants for the sub-project activities. In addition, volunteers will be provided with information on services available to youth and communities in their area, and on how these services can be accessed by their peers.

Youth Coordination Platforms: As part of this activity, the project will help youth volunteers to initiate Youth Coordination Platforms connecting a variety of local stakeholders. These local platforms will focus on understanding the situation and priorities for youth in each project location and developing local solutions to the most pressing challenges identified (i.e. participatory youth needs assessments).

In total, at least 60 youth volunteers will benefit directly from this activity. Each youth volunteer will provide outreach and information on services to at least 200 other young people.

Component 2: Support for Youth Empowerment

The component will provide small sub-grants to NGOs, CBOs and other service providers to empower youth and to improve the lives of vulnerable young people through enhanced youth development engagement including but not limited to civic participation, positive behavioral-change activities, improved social services and employability training.

 

A. Youth-driven empowerment

  • Civic participation (promoting engagement, for example, through volunteerism, rehabilitation projects including parks, community centers, etc., as well as leadership training and promotion of youth participation in local decision making processes)
  • Youth social development (e.g., youth centers, entertainment activities, behavioral-change activities, activities which support cooperation and trust);
  • Vulnerable youth inclusion activities (e.g., infrastructure to support disabled youth, promotion of activities for young women, activities to promote cohesion between refugee youth and host communities, etc.)

 

B. Youth-focused services

  • Employability support (e.g., life skills, language skills, basic business skills, skills marketing, business marketing, counseling) with a focus on vulnerable groups including, among others, female youth and persons with disabilities;
  • Apprenticeship and internship programs including job placement efforts;
  • Health services (promoting knowledge of and access to services, addressing gaps in health services, for example, community-based rehabilitation efforts, counseling);
  • Education services (providing a re-entry point for the unemployed/dropouts to vocational and/or literacy training).

Eligibility of subproject proposals will be determined during a review process managed by the Lead NGO with inputs by MOY through its PMU and approval by the Grant Approval Committee (GAC)[7] based on an evaluation which focuses on the technical and organizational capacity of the applicant institution.

This component will directly benefit 3000 youth and an estimated 40 sub-grantees. It is also expected to indirectly benefit other youth and civil society representatives in the targeted areas. While it is planned, that sub-grants will be equally distributed across youth service and youth empowerment initiatives, the selection of sub-projects will be based on technical quality of received proposals and relevance to local needs.

Sub-Grant Target:

  • About 20 sub-grants awarded to undertake youth-focused services activities with an average of 100 youth reached directly by each sub-grant
  • About 20 sub-grants awarded to local CBOs to undertake youth-driven development activities with an average of 100 youth reached directly by each sub-grant

 

 

 

Component 3: Project Management, M&E and Knowledge Dissemination

This component covers project management, including (i) setting up project implementation arrangements, (ii) supporting continuous monitoring, (iii) participatory evaluations, (iv) knowledge sharing, and (v) a final evaluation report with lessons learned, best practices and guidance related to scaling-up the project approach in Jordan. The Ministry of Youth will establish a project management unit (PMU) to implement, manage, and coordinate the project activities related to this component.

 

A. Monitoring and Evaluation and Reporting

Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) will focus on determining the extent to which the project has achieved its objectives in terms of outputs (across all components) and outcomes for youth empowerment and capacity building. To establish whether outputs have been delivered, the MoY will contract an M&E specialist as part of the PMU who will put in place an M&E online platform[8] that tracks whether the project is on target and achieving gains according to an established timeline and output (process) indicators.

Monitoring: The M&E process will include a baseline survey that will provide a starting point against which to monitor future performance of the project. To undertake M&E at community level, participatory approaches will be used. For example, NGOs, CBOs, service providers and participating youth will be regularly invited to evaluate project activities through a “score-card” exercise and to provide feedback. These participatory M&E exercises will be conducted on an ongoing basis and will be led by the lead NGO, in partnership with designated MoY staff. Communities benefiting from the project will also engage in participatory M&E related to services provided and the overall project/sub-grant approach. Such feedback from the NGOs and the communities themselves will rely on mixed methods whenever possible, and will include data from completed feedback questionnaires, in-depth interviews, focus group discussions and case studies. Information collected through the monitoring of the Project will be documented in semi-annual reports summarizing activities and outputs, and will be submitted to the Project Steering Committee, MoY, MoPIC and the Bank.

Evaluation: To establish project outcomes, an independent outcome evaluation of the Project will be conducted by a qualified researcher. The evaluation will identify samples of project beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries. Details related to the design of the evaluation study will be established as soon as project activities are selected and established. The project final evaluation report will highlight all project outputs and outcomes, lessons learnt, best practices and guidance for scaling up these activities within the Jordanian context. In addition, several case studies on organizations, activities funded by sub-grants, and communities will be undertaken to better understand their experience and the ways in which the project benefitted them and any other important information which would be useful in community development projects in the future. 

 

 

 

B. Project Management Training

Through this component capacity building is provided to the MOY key staff through on-the-job training to strengthen general project management capacity and sustainability. Training topics to be covered include:

  • Community mobilization and outreach through civil society
  • Working with vulnerable youth and the community groups
  • Financial management and procurement procedures
  • Sub-grant management
  • Participatory monitoring and evaluation
  • Management Information Systems
  • Sharing information and communicating with stakeholders
  • Results-Based Procurement

 

C. Knowledge Sharing and Sustainability Planning[9]

Knowledge sharing will take place throughout the project. Lessons learned will be disseminated in civil society forums and coordination bodies, to local communities, and to donors. Information gathered and analyzed in each component will be part of the knowledge sharing activities.

  • In Component 1, capacity building materials will be gathered, translated and disseminated to other government and civil society organizations, so that these can be widely used to build the capacity of other agencies. In addition, workshop reports will also be developed after each workshop, which will highlight specific lessons learned from the specific training activity.
  • In Component 2, organizations receiving sub-grants will be invited to share their lessons learned in annual events that will also aim to create a network of these local level service providers. At least one such annual event will be held in each project location each year. Reports from these events will also be written and translated so that they are available and useful to organizations throughout Jordan.
  • In Component 3, monitoring and evaluation reports will also be widely shared and translated. Special efforts will be made to develop summary reports that can be shared with youth and can be used by young people to hold service providers and the project accountable.

A sustainability/exit-strategy workshop will be carried out within the first six months of the project’s start. During this workshop, the mechanisms for ensuring that the project is sustainable will be developed. The workshop will also determine the key government and non-government agencies that need to be involved in the project so that youth continue to receive high quality services in the long-run and the mechanisms for involving these agencies. Fundraising strategies for the Ministry of Youth will also be put in place at this point, as will strategies for ensuring continued and long-lasting links between the Ministry of Youth and local NGOs, CBOs and service providers.  The plans and strategies developed during this workshop will be implemented by the Ministry of Youth and NGOs throughout the project.

 

  1.  Objective and Scope

Objective

The objective of this assignment is to support the Ministry of Youth in the implementation of the Integrated Social Services for Vulnerable Youth Project. The organization selected (Lead NGO) to carry out this work will be responsible for setting up, implementing, supervising, and monitoring activities under Component 1 and 2 and supporting activities under Component 3 of the Project, including management of certain technical and fiduciary aspects.

Overall Implementation Arrangements

Implementation Arrangements: The Project is designed to be jointly implemented by two or more partnering organizations, and interested organizations are encouraged to prepare a joint proposal as consortium through a lead-organization. The activities under Component 1 and 2 can be implemented through different partners (e.g. Capacity-building for Civil Society Partners; Youth Volunteer Program; Youth Coordination Platforms; Component 2 Sub-grant management).

Coordination and Reporting: The Ministry of Youth (MOY) is the government agency responsible for overall implementation of the Project and will be the client for the services described in this TOR. As such, MOY will supervise the Project implementation and will work closely with the selected organization in establishing systems and capacity at MOY for effective youth project management. The selected organization will be responsible for ensuring that the activities supported through the Project are aligned with the priorities of MOY and the National Youth Strategy[10] currently under development. The Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation (MOPIC) will handle the core Financial Management functions of the Project grant, and will chair a Project Steering Committee, consisting of project stakeholders and overseeing Project progress and required audit and financial reports.

Scope

The selected organization is expected to deploy staff and consultants with adequate experience to implement the different activities of the Project. This will include identifying the Project’s key intervention areas[11] considering existing support programs and institutional capacity of local CBOs, as well as overall supervision and monitoring of the results-based youth services offered through local CBOs and youth service providers. The organization will further be responsible for ensuring that all activities supported by the Project are in line with the government priorities, including but not limited to the National Youth Strategy and ensure regular reporting to the PMU at MoY on results being achieved by the Project based on an annual workplan to be developed. In addition, the selected organization will implement a capacity building strategy to strengthen Project implementation both at the MoY, across local Youth centers and for sub-grant recipients. Responsibilities include (i) contracting and selection of local CBOs to implement specific tasks under Components 1 and 2; (ii) processing and disbursement of the sub-grants to local CBOs and youth service providers; and (iii) monitoring and evaluation of sub-grants.

 

Component 1: Capacity-Building for Civil Society Partners serving Youth

Activity 1.1: Capacity-building for Civil Society Partners

Develop and implement curriculum for capacity-building of youth empowerment and service provision organizations: This activity will be managed directly by the selected organization, but can involve local or national NGOs as trainers or advisors. The organization will be expected to establish a common framework which includes a developed or otherwise acquired curriculum, or set of training activities, to support CBO capacity for sustainability, and to manage and implement youth led community Projects. A focus of this training will help service provision organizations understand the priorities of young people, mechanisms to engage with them, and how to increase services to youth through youth-driven development activities. In addition, the selected organization is expected to implement these capacity building activities in the Project Area in different governorates across Jordan.[12]

A structured series of workshops will be used to prepare and implement this activity: During the first series of workshops, local organizations specializing in service delivery for youth will be invited to leverage their expertise, learn from their challenges and successes working with youth, and help map civil society organizations working with youth in the project area. A second set of workshops will involve service providers interested in implementing activities under Component 2. Capacity building activities will be targeted to the specific type of institution and to their role. All institutions, however, are expected to receive thorough training on youth engagement and empowerment, participatory development, and participatory monitoring and evaluation.

In total, a minimum of 200 staff from 40 of NGOs, CBOs, and other service providers is expected to participate in the workshops series. Indirectly, this activity would benefit all youth served by the local NGOs, CBOs, and other service providers.

 

Activity 1.2: Support to Youth Volunteer Program and Youth Coordination Platforms

Support to Youth Volunteer Program:  The selected organization will implement an effective community volunteering program. To that end it will identify and support youth volunteers across the Project locations who will be provided with information on services available to youth and communities in their area (referral services), and on how these services can be accessed to better serve youth. In addition, the support for young volunteers will include training on leadership skills, problem identification and solving; civil participation and inclusion of vulnerable youth. An effort will be made to include on vulnerable youth and encourage them to take leadership roles through activities developed by the selected organization.

In total, 60 youth volunteers will benefit directly from this activity. Each youth volunteer will provide outreach and information on services to at least 200 other young people.

Youth Coordination Platforms: The selected organization will support youth to initiate Youth Coordination Platforms in their communities. These local platforms will include different levels of stakeholders and focus on understanding the situation and priorities for youth.[13] The information will be used to reach out to vulnerable young people and to ensure that youth-focused service providers and local officials well understand the needs among the different segments of local youth (male, female, youth in school, youth in employment, youth without work, youth with risky behaviors, etc.). It will further ensure that youth are included in local-decision making processes.

 

Component 2: Support for Youth Empowerment

 

Activity 2.1: (A) Youth-driven empowerment and (B) Youth-focused services

Develop and implement youth activities and services: This activity is expected to be managed directly by the selected organization, which will support youth empowerment, support employability and strengthen social inclusion. The selected organization will support local CBOs to offer services and activities to young people based on their needs. Activities will be implemented by CBOs using a results-based approach following a clear theory of change and measurable outcome indicators. Sub-grants will support youth-led community initiatives to support and strengthen integration and overcome marginalization of youth and will be provided in two main windows: (A) youth-driven empowerment and (B) youth-focused services. Specific activities can cover a range of subjects in the areas of (i) life-skills, leadership and soft-skills; (ii) employability skills and entrepreneurship; (iii) creative skills, and (iv) outdoor activities. The Lead NGO may also add other areas based on youth needs and no objection by PMU/MOY and the World Bank.[14] The activities will focus on youth empowerment and providing youth with an increased sense of purpose in life, and support agency and voice.

Sub-grants for local CBOs: The selected organization will manage the sub-grant scheme for CBOs to finance the described activities and provide training and capacity building to ensure the offered youth engagement activities follow global best-practice in youth development programming and participatory methods. The implementation of sub-projects to be financed through the grants will follow the World Bank simplified fiduciary procedures. The implementation of sub-grants will be implemented using results-based approaches, based on measurable outcomes.[15] A comprehensive capacity building program will strengthen the overall implementation, outcomes, and long-term sustainability of the project.

The selected organization will manage and support the preparation, selection and supervision of sub-grant proposals and their implementation by local CBOs and Youth Service Providers. First, the selected organization will inform local CBOs and service providers about the sub-grant opportunities including eligibility and results-based implementation arrangements. Second, interested local organizations will receive technical assistance in developing effective proposals in line with Project objectives. Third, proposals will be reviewed by the selected organization regarding technical and financial eligibility criteria, and subsequently submitted to a Grant Approval Committee (GAC) for approval. The GAC will be responsible for reviewing and approving sub-project proposals. Sub-grants are expected to support activities in areas including youth empowerment, civic engagement, employability, and inclusion. It is expected that sub-grants will focus on including the most vulnerable youth age 15-30 years, according to the Project eligibility criteria[16], and will be carried out in close consultation and participation with young people and with as much participation of youth as possible. Sub-grant disbursement will follow a transparent system with a clear accountability structure which will be developed by the selected organization, which will be responsible for setting up a vetting process with MOY and MOPIC and in line with sub-grant requirements of the World Bank.[17]

Specifically, to be eligible to receive sub-grant funding, the GAC and the MOY will ensure that the proposed approach and activities: (1) support an institution that operates local facilities which will be enhanced by the grant; (2) are developed using a participatory design and a strong consultation process with youth and community members (including the most vulnerable and hard to reach groups); (3) adhere to a model for effectively targeting services to reach youth not reached by other programs; (4) use participatory M&E mechanisms; and (5) are characterized by a high level of cooperation/partnerships with other providers/organizations and linkages to a services referral network. 

 

Component 3: Project Management, M&E and Knowledge Dissemination

Monitoring and evaluation of activities: This activity will be supported by the selected organization and supervised by MOY. The selected organization will conduct all M&E activities through the Management Information System (MIS) – an online platform for project monitoring, which will be separately developed by a specialized vendor and procured through MOY. The selected organization will support the development of the MIS and use the MIS to track progress through agreed M&E indicators. The MIS will allow the selected organization and local CBOs to benefit from case management in supporting vulnerable youth. Youth will participate in the M&E activities through direct feedback on project activities, measurement of outcomes and skill development, and evaluation. Overall, the selected organization will be responsible for refining the Project monitoring framework, establishing data collection systems, collecting data, analyzing the data and developing progress reports. Monitoring and evaluation systems will be participatory and involve youth and Project beneficiaries. The MOY will also contract an independent research group to carry out a Project outcome evaluation, to which the selected organization is expected to contribute. (Procurement Note: The MIS and the Project outcome evaluation will be covered under separate contracts managed by MOY).

Capacity Building: The selected organization will be responsible for ensuring the transfer of knowledge and know how through the engagement of the appropriate divisions of the Ministry of Youth to ensure project management capacity at MOY is sufficient for the implementation of similar activities, and that the service delivery capacity of youth centers and other relevant local youth institutions also increases in the Project area towards effectively offering youth services through sustainable programming. In addition, the organization will provide capacity building training to the Ministry of Youth including but not limited to (i) community mobilization and outreach through civil society; (ii) working with vulnerable youth and the community groups; (iii) financial management and procurement procedures; (iv) sub-grant management; (v) participatory monitoring and evaluation; (vi) Management Information Systems; and (vii) sharing information and communicating with stakeholders.
