The ICYE Honduras Office Project is the opportunity for an international volunteer to directly support the staff members of ICYE Honduras. ICYE Honduras is a non-profit and non-governmental organisation, a full member of the ICYE Federation, with exchange programmes that offer the opportunity to acquire intercultural competence through a non-formal education process involving intercultural learning and ethical international voluntary service.
The organisation has an Outgoing programme to send Honduran volunteers abroad, and an Incoming programme to host international volunteers in Honduras. It also has a Volunteers programme, with which Honduran volunteers who have already participated abroad are encouraged to help in Honduras during training camps and to raise funds for the Scholarships programme of ICYE Honduras, which supports low-income students in order to continue their studies in school.
Currently ICYE Honduras is seeking for a volunteer who has an educational background and/or work experience in the fundraising field in order to develop the Scholarships programme of ICYE Honduras. This would include tasks such as:
organising files and databases of sponsored students, their families and schools
creating campaigns to encourage sponsorships
developing strategies to raise funds
organising events and activities
The volunteer will also assist the staff members of the Outgoing and Incoming programmes, especially as a community manager, handling the different social media accounts of the organisation.
