Already registered? Please submit updated resumes and indicate particular areas of interest to our recruiters today.

During current travel restrictions, two types of volunteer assignments are available: Virtual and Local.

Virtual assignments are available to American volunteers and are usually a series of calls or webinars addressing the assignment topic with the host, with a final report at the end. It is possible, but not guaranteed, that virtual volunteers may be able to travel to country for assignment completion when restrictions relax.

Local assignments are available to ALL applicants regardless of citizenship and combine in-country assistance with virtual support from an American volunteer. The local volunteer is responsible for assignment design and preparation, and the virtual support from a paired American is designed to help provide supplementary training resources, review trainings as needed, and to complete the US Outreach component of the assignment. These assignments pairing local/regional and American volunteers were designed to ensure that hosts can benefit from in-country or regional expertise while Americans are unable to travel.    

Applicants interested in either type of assignment should reach out to the listed recruiter with their interest and resume.
