LivelyHoods is a young, dynamic social enterprise that works to create livelihoods for youth in urban slums. Since 2011, we have built a sales network that trains and employs youth to sell life-improving goods, from solar powered lamps to clean burning stoves, in hard-to-reach slum communities. To date, LivelyHoods has employed over 900 youth sales representatives who have sold thousands of goods in their communities. Sales representatives make an impact in their communities, earn a livelihood and gain employable skills that will increase their lifetime earnings. We have been recognized with dozens of awards and fellowships for social innovation and have been profiled by media outlets like the Guardian and PBS.
LivelyHoods seeks an analytic, innovative and process-oriented professional to lead, grow and drive our training activities on the ground in Kenya. This hard-working and self-motivated individual will be based in Nairobi, Kenya and will work closely with the Executive Director and Operations Managers on developing and implementing training curricula, strategies and logistics. This includes professional and technical skill development of operational leaders and staff specific in day-to-day management of training content and delivery. This position will be instrumental in scaling the impact that LivelyHoods has on urban youth from Kenya to sub-Saharan Africa and beyond.
