Turning Tables (TT) is a Danish-based international non-profit organization that aims to empower disadvantaged youth in vulnerable communities by giving them access to training, education, and creative capacity-building in the fields of music, filmmaking, and arts. At the same time, it amplifies the voices of adolescents and youth at local and national levels, providing them with the means to express their grievances, hopes, and dreams.
TT established a local office in Jordan in 2010 and has since implemented various cultural and creative projects. TT has comprehensive experience working to promote and support freedom of expression, human rights, civic engagement, economic inclusion, and social cohesion between marginalized refugees and Jordanian host communities. One of the main focuses has been working with traumatized and vulnerable youth in refugee camps, preventing negative coping mechanisms, offering psycho-social support, and youth empowerment through creative trauma processing.
Turning Tables through its office in Jordan (TTJ) is in the process of preparing for the implementation of the project “CLIQ – Creative Learning for Improving Quality of life for vulnerable youth in Jordan”, which is a demand driven project that seeks to break new ground in providing marginalized Syrian and Jordanian youth with a skill set that will improve their employability in the context of the 21st century job market. The project will offer a combination of training within creative subjects focussing on either film, music or design as well as a project management course. After having finalised this basic training, project participants will gain hands on experience, acquired through either teaching experience (ToT) of children/youth in after school clubs at local Community Based Organisations, or through internships within companies/institutions related to the Cultural and Creative Industries (CCI) in Jordan.
A detailed project description will be shared with the consultant at the beginning of the consultancy along with any other documents necessary.
As part of the project activities for CLIQ a comprehensive Project Management course will be given to the youth participants, between the ages of 16-25. The course will be an important building block in the upgrade of skills that the CLIQ project seeks to address, in order to deliver the overall project objective: To increase the quality of life and employability of vulnerable Syrian and Jordanian youth by enhancing their life skills and creative technical capacity to work within the creative industries in Jordan.
The main objective of the project management course is to equip the participants with an understanding of how management tools and skills can help ensure that their work is delivered on time and within budget, how to allocate resources more efficiently and make better business decisions whether as part of a team or in their entrepreneurial projects. The selected consultant/institution should be able to cover some the following content in their training, but should not be limited to:
