Description and Impact
We are looking for hard-working, dedicated Experteer to commit their time and talents for one year at our children’s home in Thailand. Your role will be to manage the day-to-day maintenance of the center’s programs and initiatives alongside an international staff, in the effort to provide a better opportunity for children’s futures.
Our Thailand center is a home for seven older children from a nearby hill tribe. Teenagers from this marginalized community come to our center for a stable home and the chance for an education. Your role would include fostering a familial environment for the children, overseeing their education and managing the various needs and activities of the center.
We are a grassroots, all-volunteer organization with no central office, so co-Directors complete 4 hours of international work daily that consists of various administrative tasks. All co-Directors manage one or more of our international task teams, such as University Relations, Fundraising, Teacher Training or Media. You will work closely with co-Directors at other centers to manage these teams and will receive unique training in a multi-level, multifaceted system. You will be assigned your team according to your experience and skills.
We Provide These Local Benefits
- Living Stipend
- Learning Opportunity
- Meal Stipend
Simple accommodation provided at our children's home in Chiang Rai, Thailand.
Stipend: Volunteers must commit to serve at least one year at the center. Basic accommodation and food is provided by us. You are a volunteer at the center and all local tasks completed are done so without pay. As a co-Director, you will receive a small monthly stipend. This stipend results only from the international online work. After one year there is the opportunity to become a full Director. The stipend is broken down as follows:
First 3 months: Training period $20 per month
3-6 months: Assistant co-Director $50 per month
6-9 months: Co-Director $80 per month
9-12 months: Co-Director $100 per month
These stipends are fixed. They will not be raised for more experienced applicants, and everyone will be upgraded according to the timeframes outlined above and no sooner. There are no exceptions to this, regardless of what may be the situation in the center.
The job can be strenuous, but is incredibly rewarding and you will leave us with new highly transferable skills, a better understanding of international NGOs, and an unforgettable experience that will last the rest of your life.
