Job Description

Terms of Reference

Midline Evaluation Enumerators (2)

  • Project: WUSC’s Volunteer Cooperation Program (VCP) - IGNI+E 
  • Dates: January/February 2024
  • Level of effort: 20 (minimum) - 30 (maximum) working days within the above period
  • Location: Ghana
  • Reports to: Midline Evaluation Coordinator
  • Number of Positions: 2


World University Service of Canada (WUSC) is a Canadian non-profit organization with a mission to enhance education, economic opportunities, and empowerment for youth. We work with a diverse network of students, volunteers, institutions, governments, and businesses. Together, we foster youth-centered solutions to overcome inequality and exclusion.
WUSC’s Volunteer Cooperation Program called IGNI+E (Innovative Global Networks for Inclusion + Equality, pronounced IGNITE), is a 7-year initiative (2020-2027) funded by Global Affairs Canada,  that will strengthen the performance of 70+ partner organizations to advance gender equality and economic empowerment for 1.2 million poor and marginalized youth, in particular young women (70% women). The IGNI+E Project will harness the knowledge, capacity, and expertise of skilled Canadians through 1200 volunteer assignments to assist partners in improving their performance, advocate for gender equality, and implement more sustainable, innovative, and inclusive initiatives and services for poor and marginalized youth, particularly young women. 
WUSC is seeking two (2) qualified enumerators to assist in the facilitation of the Midline Evaluation for the IGNI+E project in Ghana.
2. Background of the Project
Young people are more likely to be unemployed than adults, with the global youth unemployment rate 3X higher than the adult rate of 4.3% (ILO, 2018). Across most labour market indicators, wide disparities exist between young women and men, underpinning and giving rise to wider gaps during the transition to adulthood. For example, the global labour force participation rate for young men stands at 53.9% compared to 37.3% for young women (ILO 2016). There is a growing body of evidence that specialized employment and entrepreneurship programs do work, especially when they target marginalized youth, and when they combine training with other forms of support. Given this background, IGNI+E aims to respond to these challenges by supporting 70+ partners across six countries to improve their performance in delivering inclusive and innovative programming that advances gender equality. 
Through the improved performance of service delivery organizations, employers, government bodies, training institutions, advocacy groups, and a higher-performing and more inclusive ecosystem of stakeholders,  IGNI+E will contribute to the improvement of the socio-economic well-being of poor and marginalized youth, particularly young women, by supporting partners to generate inclusive and sustainable employment and entrepreneurship opportunities. 
3. Purpose of the Midline Evaluation
The purpose of this formative evaluation is to measure the progress and planned/unplanned results achieved by WUSC’s VCP to guide decision-making on the project’s implementation strategies for continuous improvement and learning. It will also review the recommendations of the baseline report, and assess the extent to which these were implemented. The evaluation will also ensure accountability towards Global Affairs Canada as a donor, the partners, and the partner program participants.
