Amer joined Generations For Peace in April 2018 as a Field Coordinator. In this role, he supports the implementation of various GFP programmes, mainly in the governorate of Al-Tafilah. This includes providing logistical support, monitoring programme implementation to ensure highest quality, and coordinating various workshops and trainings as needed.
Originally from Jordan, Amer holds a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Tafilah Technical University, and a Bachelor’s degree in English Literature. His strong belief in the importance of spreading a culture of peace, rejecting violence, and creating sustainable impact while engaging local youth and volunteers is what ultimately led him to join GFP.
Before joining GFP, Amer worked as a Programmes and Activities Coordinator as part of a USAID project focused on workforce development in Jordan. He also has experience as supervising various Arts For Peace initiatives implemented by the Jordanian Ministry of Education and the National Centre for Culture and Arts, and as a Programmes, Activities, and Training Coordinator with various local and international organisations, including Jordan River Foundation, Justice Center for Legal Aid, Danish Refugee Council, and Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature.
