Hot Jobs 36: International Volunteer Jobs

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for Hot Jobs! If you are a regular reader of the JobMonkey blog, you know that each Wednesday I post a handful of hot new jobs listed over at the JobMonkey Job Center.

Have you visited the Job Center lately?

The Job Center features thousands of job openings, in dozens of fields, all updated daily. The best news is that the Center is completely free for job seekers.

This week, I am featuring international volunteer jobs, including a community outreach coordinator in Rwanda and a volunteer teacher in Nepal. (Do you get the JobMonkey newsletter? This week’s edition spotlighted five of the benefits of becoming a volunteer. Sign up to receive the newsletter here.) You can learn more about volunteering in America and overseas at the JobMonkey.

1. Assistant Community Outreach Coordinator, RWEYOWA, Rwanda
RWEYOWA is one of the largest community outreach, non-profit organizations in Rwanda, serving HIV/AIDS patients, widows, elderly people and orphans. The organization provides counseling, food, clothing and other support services. The person in this volunteer position will help to coordinate home visits, monitor and report on the progress of outreach activities, organize fundraising activities and other duties as assigned. The ideal candidate will have fluent written and spoken English, computer literacy, and experience in writing proposals and fundraising. The volunteer coordinator will be provided with meals and accommodation, for a monthly charge of $350. The coordinator must also cover the costs of his or her transportation and health insurance. You can learn more about Rweyowa at the organization’s website.

2. English Teacher Job Nepal at Alliance Nepal, Pokhara, Nepal
Alliance Nepal provides health, education and community aid programs to the people of Nepal, particularly orphans. The organization is currently looking for a volunteer English teacher to serve in one of the orphanages of the Buddhist Monk Health & Sanitation Program. Volunteers can work anywhere from 2 weeks to three months, with flexible schedules providing plenty of time for exploring the wonders of Nepal and the Tibetan nation. Volunteers will receive a several-day orientation period, with basic Nepali language classes, culture orientation and sightseeing. Serving as a volunteer will incur a monthly cost to cover airport pickup, orientation and training, room and board, and voluntary supervision. Additionally, volunteers are responsible for the cost of their flight, visa, vaccinations and travel insurance. Estimated spending money is $10 per week. You can learn more about Alliance Nepal at the organization’s website.
