She’s the First is a global girls’ rights organization that fights for a world where every girl can choose her own future. They team up with grassroots leaders to make sure girls everywhere are educated, respected and heard. Over the past 13 years, they’ve created transformational outcomes for 226,500 girls by working alongside 285 community organizations in 42 countries.

To support mentors, their biggest program is the Girls First Institute: a skills-building, outcomes-improving hub for women who uplift girls in their communities. It includes their annual conference, fellowship programs, widely distributed toolkits, a collaborative network of 700+ members, and a tight-knit Partner Coalition.

Their innovative Training Manager will be responsible for growing engagement and outcomes within the Girls First Institute. Their perfect match is someone who is looking to step into a transformative role, and who considers themselves a builder of pipelines, projects, and teams.

They seek someone with proven experience developing curricula/resources and in leading trainings across different global contexts.
