The Youth Engagement Activity has a total budget of $5.5 million, including all costs associated with the project manager role. The Solomon Islands Project Manager - Youth Engagement Activity will be responsible for managing the project to completion.
The Youth Engagement Activity supports Solomon Islands’ priorities to empower youths socially and economically so they can contribute to the long term peace and security of Solomon Islands with resulting long term economic growth and prosperity.
The short term outcomes of the facilities upgrade are:
• Youth use safe and inclusive space for sport and other recreation.

• Solomon Islands have increased facilities for Pacific Games.
To achieve the outcomes of the Youth Engagement Activity, it is important that the Solomon Islands Project Manager - Youth Engagement Activity delivers the services to the highest professional standards and maintains personal integrity, a high standard of ethics and a strong client focus during the assignment.
