Become a Destoori Guide

LFJL is looking for active, enthusiastic, and confident individuals who are passionate about social reform in their country to train as Destoori Ambassadors. They will be the key link between the people and their constitution.


Destoori Guides will be key figures in Destoori, in charge of carrying out many of the project’s core events and activities. During the Rehlat Watan bus tour, Destoori Guides will travel across much of Libya and make stops to hold discussions and community events. These will demonstrate the importance of the constitution building process and highlight the choices that Libya will face in the future. Destoori Guides will also interview attendees in order to understand their expectations and core concerns regarding the upcoming constitution. This information, along with the Destoori Guides’ experiences during the tour, will be used to help draft recommendations to the Constitutional Drafting Committee.

Provisional destinations include: Benghazi, Al Baydah, Darnah, Tobruk, Ajdabiya, Al Jofrah, Sirte, Misratah, Al Khoms, Sebha, Al Kufrah, Tripoli, Al Zawiya/Sabratah/Sorma/Al Aielat, Gheryan, Zintan, Cabou/Jadu/Yefren, Ghadames, Zwara, Al Gmeil-Regdaleen, Tarhouna - Bani Walid, and Nalut. 


Length of Appointment: Both 3 months or 1 year fixed duration contracts available.
