This document, and the accompanying self-rating tool, are designed to help Gender Leads identify any gaps in their technical skill set. Throughout the document, there are links to key resources Gender Leads can use to help address any identified gaps and strengthen their capacity. Additionally, senior management can use this document to build position descriptions at the beginning of a program or during the proposal development stage. Similarly, leadership can use these core competencies to develop interview questions for Gender Leads and staff.

The Gender and Youth Activity (GAYA) created this document as a partial update of the TOPS Program and FSN Network Core Competency Series Booklet which was published in 2017. A recently created version of the Youth Staff Core Competencies is also available to support RFSAs in their work.
