Volunteer with SIA-Africa
Students have the opportunity to volunteer part-time at SIA-Africa (Sustainable Initiatives and Alliances for Africa).
Its mission is to develop sustainable global alliances that will transform education and investments initiatives into ethical impact change across Africa. Its areas of work include sustainable-design consulting, direct investments, and developing strong partners with resources to support sustainable change.
Students should be interested in issues of education, sustainability and governance. Those with a knowledge of development in Africa are most welcome. Students should also like to get hands-on, practical experience in an NGO and as a career resume builder. Volunteers will report to the education and governance assistant or to team leaders and will be responsible for research, funding strategy, partnership development, and/or social media presence.
Student volunteers will work virtually via email. A Gmail account is required to access materials within the organization. On rare occasions, volunteers may be asked to participate in online meetings or represent the organization at conferences in Manhattan or at other locations.
Exemplary volunteers that provide sixty service hours over a six-month period may receive a recommendation for future use.
To apply, email Nina Dahjer, education and governance assistant, at email@example.com.
