Project Summary
Search for Common Ground – Tunisia (Search-Tunisia) is currently implementing in partnership with
FHI360 the USAID-funded Ma3an program, which aims to increase the capacity of communities to
withstand political, social, and economic stresses and shocks by achieving the objectives of: 1)
strengthened community resilience, 2) mitigated community vulnerabilities, and 3) improved capacity of
Tunisian partners to sustain and replicate the model. Ma3an will spur 30 of Tunisia’s most vulnerable
communities to action and generate sustainable resources for development in areas that are vulnerable
to instability. Together with USAID-Tunisia’s programs in accountability, decentralization, and youth
entrepreneurship (i.e., TADAEEM and Mashrou3i), Ma3an will consolidate democratic progress while
fostering social cohesion in target areas.

Search in Tunisia
Search’s mission in Tunisia is to promote the culture of dialogue and diversity through the involvement of
all parts of society while building their capacities. Search works in Tunisia to help members of Tunisian
society to address conflicts and differences constructively through cooperation and dialogue. SearchTunisia works across multiple channels, mainly with youth, CSOs, media actors, security forces, and local
authorities to build the capacity of individuals and institutions to address challenges including differences
and acting on common points. Through this approach and partnerships, Search-Tunisia has four main
strategic objectives: (i) promoting peace education; (ii) fostering non-violent social dialogue; (iii)
enhancing participatory and inclusive governance; and (iv) transforming violent extremism. More
information about our Tunisia program can be found here.

About the Consultancy
As part of the Ma3an program, Search-Tunisia aims to engage teachers and school administrators to
provide civic engagement opportunities for youth in several vulnerable Tunisian communities. During the
first year, Search will do this by developing an Arabic-language civic engagement curriculum that will
guide middle and high school teachers and administrators in 18 schools across six Tunisian governorates
in the delivery of weekly extra-curricular civic engagement classes to students.

Search-Tunisia seeks to procure the services of (an) external independent consultant(s) who will work
closely with the Ma3an team and the Ministry of Education to lead the development of the civic
engagement curriculum and train teachers and administrators on its use.

The external consultant will lead the curriculum development with support and input from the Ma3an
School-Based Youth Engagement Advisor and Technical Officer, as well as the Gender Equality and
Social Inclusion (GESI) Advisor. The curriculum will be age- and capacity-appropriate, and integrate
gender and social inclusions considerations, such as the promotion of adult-accompanied service
activities held during day-time hours. These activities may range from organizing civic advocacy
campaigns in collaboration with local authorities, to hosting cultural and charity events with the
engagement of both youth and their parents/teachers. To inform the creation of the curriculum and ensure
resonance to the Tunisian context, the consultant will develop a participatory methodology based on
focus group discussions (FGD) within each target community that convene key stakeholders, such as teachers, inspectors, students, parents and other key educators. These FGDs will allow the consultant
and the Ma3an team to assess local gaps, needs, and opportunities regarding youth civic engagement.

The content of the curriculum will: (1) be informed by a desk review of external literature, led by the
Search-Tunisia DM&E team with support from the Ma3an School-Based Youth Engagement Advisor,
which will look at regional and global best practice in the development of civic education curricula; (2)
capitalize on Search-Tunisia’s previous success implementing civic engagement and peace education
curriculums in 20 (primary) schools in ten Tunisia governorates; (3) leverage Search’s global experience
in developing civic education curricula in other countries (in Yemen, for instance) through the technical
support provided by Search’s Children and Youth Department. The Ministry of Education will be closely
consulted throughout the curriculum development process through regular calls, informal discussions and
formal workshops with Ministry officials for feedback.
The consultant will conduct work in the six target governorates of Zaghouan, Tunis, Jendouba, Siliana,
Sousse, and Kairouan, but the final selection of target communities and schools will be made in
collaboration with USAID and the Ministry of Education. S/he will report to the School-Based Youth
Engagement Advisor and work closely with the School-Based Youth Engagement Technical Officer,
Search-Tunisia DM&E team, and the Search-Ma3an Team Leader. This consultancy will last for
approximately 6 months, from January to June 2019
